Kids in Vegetable Farm

but there's a problem!

Chums establish relationships with schools, churches, child care services.  We partner with various organizations to identify the needs of children and leverage our efforts to remove distractions that keep them from focusing on school. We look to increase their confidence levels and assist them to develop strong relationships with their parents and family. We have projects that address children’s social skills and future educational needs, especially with the STEM programs.  

THE PROBLEM:  All too often children become invisible to the system and outside help is needed.
