1.6 million children are homeless annually in USA. There are 334,131 California children who experience homelessness each year. Families with young children now account for 40% of the homeless population.
School on Wheels has been providing tutoring for 20 years. Our one-on-one tutoring is the cornerstone of our program. We are the only organization whose volunteers go to their students, wherever they may be, to tutor them one-on-one for one hour a week.
We believe that every student has potential and every volunteer tutor can make a positive difference in the life of a homeless child. There are over 56,000 homeless children in the school districts that we serve. Our goal for 2013 was to help 2,800 students which we achieved, and our goal for 2014 is to educate 3,500 more.
