AT-RISK CRISIS CARE
In collaboration with the Haitian child welfare agency (IBESR), ESPWA provides temporary residency in safe family-style homes for children in crisis while their families regain their ability to care for their child(ren). Children are reunified with their families or alternative family placement is chosen.
On the Espwa campus, classes are offered for Pre-K through University Prep to vulnerable children at a reduced tuition rate or full scholarship. Religious Education is offered during the school day, which develops the spiritual, moral, ethical, and service culture of the students.
YOUNG ADULT EMPOWERMENT
Young adults are offered a broad range of services to prepare and guide them towards a productive career. Educators and community leaders mentor youth to achieve professional success, live independent lives, develop civic responsibility and life skills.
