Our vision is to provide the highest impact to the communities we support and to never turn away a child in need. We will work selflessly to break down socioeconomic barriers for youth and to bring people together for a better future.


Our mission is to create opportunities for under-resourced kids by providing experiences that will unlock their true potential and provide optimism about the possibilities beyond their borders.

fall 2018 mini grants

“This day and age, a computer and the internet are needed for a lot of things - school, work, job access, college applications, etc. Having computers in my classroom will allow my access what they need and keep them competitive with their suburban neighbors...This will also enhance positive relationship building, which in turn increases our school culture and climate, and makes learning and growing at HPHS accessible, enjoyable, and successful!”
— Elizabeth Matthews, Teacher, Hartford Public HS
