Happy Independence Day!

The Fourth of July is the peak of summer: a time of celebration, vacations and barbecues. The period from July 3 thru August 11 is traditionally the hottest and humidest time of the year.

Air conditioning is a pleasure for most students, but for homeless and precariously housed students, it’s another thing they must go without. Shelter cool enough for sleep along with food, water and the basic necessities can be harder to find when the temperature spikes.

These struggling students don’t want to give up their dream of completing their education. The HIGH (Helping Individuals Go Higher) Program is ready to give those students the extra boost they need to succeed, no matter how hot the weather.
