PROGRAMS

Tutors in Action: Recruits volunteer tutors to help homeless children complete homework and promote positive study habits. Tutors in Action takes place at 11 homeless shelters in Indianapolis and one elementary school. In addition to daily tutoring, children receive free backpacks, school supplies and school uniforms.

Ignite Learning: Provides educational advocacy and support to homeless parents of the children tutored and creates educational opportunities for homeless students to gain access to high school mentoring and college scholarships. This program encourages parents to become informed and involved in their children's education and paves the way for homeless children to become college graduates.

FUND-RAISER

School on Wheels did not host its annual auction and benefit concert this year so that management could focus on programming and sustainability instead of event planning. As an alternative, School on Wheels conducted an online campaign called "The Race to End Homelessness." During the month of April 2009, board, staff and volunteers solicited donations and raised $32,258.

  1. Angela IS the best RD

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
