Solid Ground provides a supportive learning and living environment in which families with children can thrive. We provide a variety of programs and activities to help the formerly homeless children in our housing programs grow socially, emotionally and academically.
Learning & Enrichment Program
The Learning & Enrichment Program provides after-school tutoring at East Metro Place for kids in grades K-8. The program is led by a licensed educator and involves over 60 volunteers from the community to provide one-to-one tutoring in reading and math skills. This program impacts more than just a child’s academic success, it also helps to improve their children’s attitude and behavior. If you are interested in being a tutor CLICK HERE.
These groups are gender-specific mentoring programs for boys and girls in grades 4-8. Boys and Girls Clubs gives kids the opportunity to try new activities and have new experiences. These clubs also help formerly homeless children develop strong, positive relationships with adults and other kids.
Family and Children’s Activities
Fun and educational activities are provided to both adults and children, including various holiday and cultural celebrations, trips to museums, parks, sporting events, etc.
Each August, we collect school supplies for Solid Ground families, so that each child is properly prepared for the beginning of the school year and academic success.
Solid Ground provides childcare during adult programming as well as a variety of early learning opportunities for our littlest ones throughout the year. We are always in need of volunteers to assist us in caring for children. CLICK HERE to learn more about becoming a volunteer.
