Providing Hope for Children Impacted by Homelessness
You are here
The Monarch School, a MAXIMUS Foundation Spring 2013 grantee, is truly one of a kind. Operating out of San Diego, California, the Monarch School is an accredited K-12 public school, created from a unique public-private partnership between the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) and the nonprofit Monarch School Project, a 501(c)(3) corporation.
The mission of the Monarch School is to educate students impacted by homelessness and to help them develop necessary skills and experiences for personal success that results in a sense of hope for the future. This organization works to provide any student impacted by homelessness in San Diego County with a rigorous education in a supportive environment. Children grow to become highly motivated, contributing members of society, and are taught to know they can make a difference.
“The MAXIMUS Foundation is very proud to have been a supporter of the Monarch School for many years,” said John Boyer, Chairman of the MAXIMUS Foundation. “The impressive work they do every day is well aligned with the MAXIMUS corporate mission of helping serve disadvantaged and underserved populations, and their contribution to the San Diego community is extraordinary.”
The Monarch School is one of the only programs of its kind and has become the model for cities striving to help homeless children in their community. Financial support from the MAXIMUS Foundation has helped the city’s homeless children to look toward a bright future and great success.
