Ending poverty starts in school

Join us at Square One.

The numbers are clear: school is square one for reaching all families and ensuring children are healthy and successful in life.

Sacramento-area kids who graduate from college are 62% less likely to live in poverty than those who drop out of high school.

In 2016, we launched our Square One Project, a 20-year commitment to significantly reduce poverty by increasing the number of kids who graduate from high school ready for college or career.
