On October 27th School on Wheels will host it's 5th Annual Fun Run / Walk to raise money & spread awareness.
The mission of School on Wheels is to enhance educational opportunities for homeless children from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Our goal is to shrink the gaps in their education and provide them with the highest level of education possible. Our program serves as a consistent support system to homeless students at a time of great stress and fear. We bring the message to our students that they are cared about and important. We do this by offering:
One-on-one weekly tutoring with a volunteer
Backpacks, school supplies and school uniforms
Assistance in entering school
Help in locating lost records for parents in educational matters for their children
Tutoring in seven major regions in Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.
