Breaking ground on the new classroom
Breaking ground on the new classroom

Hi friends,

Phase 1 is finally under construction! With 140 students in our scholarship program now and so many children and community members taking advantage of our Resource Center, the new building will make a huge difference—and allow us to invite even more children and families to participate in The Freedom Project!

This building will provide:

  • Two new classrooms, including a dedicated computer lab
  • Spaces for private meetings and counseling sessions
  • A small kitchen/cafe area
  • Secure storage for student information
  • An office for on-site staff

Thanks to your gifts, we can finish the foundation and most of the first floor this summer! We still need an additional $12,000 to build the roof and finish the second floor.


GlobalGiving is giving away money!

On Wednesday, June 12, when you give to The SOLD Project, GlobalGiving will match your gift at 50 percent!

That means your $20 gift magically becomes $30, your $50 gift magically becomes $75, and your $1,000 gift magically becomes $1,500! Will you help us spread the word?

Thank you for believing in us and giving so generously to support our mission. We couldn't be more proud to partner with you.

With hope,


Making progress
