Supported Enrollment

  • Training for community staff members
  • A visual roadmap to guide families and staff through the process
  • Flexible resources for families including bus tickets and childcare
  • Help with getting identification and completing income taxes
  • Providing two full-time support workers to help enroll families
  • A video with stories and experiences from community members.
