After School Program
Single-parent families are notoriously crunched for time, especially in the crucial hours after school and before the parent comes home from work. MYEF fills the gap with friendship, group mentoring, activities — even help with homework. Transportation is provided directly from school when necessary.
Many of our children are dealing with issues arising from their family situations. Trained interns work with them one-on-one in weekly sessions and follow-up calls, under the supervision of our clinical directors. They monitor all aspects of the child’s well being — emotional, mental, financial, nutritional — anything to help them succeed.
Periodically, we take the children on special trip or provide some special inhouse entertainment. This is something extra engaging that includes skill building and teamwork elements.
We do everything we can to support our families, including school placements, weekly food packages, case management, coats & clothing — whatever these families need to provide a safe and secure environ-ment for their children.
