Clearinghouse CDFI’s long-term commitment to at-risk youth is reflected in its partnership with Monarch School—a San Diego, California nonprofit dedicated to providing education for students impacted by homelessness.
In addition to its educational and academic curricula, Monarch School provides kindergarten through 12th grade students who are experiencing the unique challenges of homelessness with basic yet critical necessities. This includes shower facilities, toiletries, clothing, and meals.
Extending our support:
Clearinghouse CDFI participated in a 2014 partnership to provide $50,000 in grant funds for student enrichment activities, including a Legoland science workshop for 7th graders.
Clearinghouse CDFI provided financial support to send the 8th graders on a three-day science camp at the Catalina Island Marine Institute.
