Wishing all of our friends and family a very Happy New Year! While it has been a very rough year for all of us, I am so proud of our Native Scholar youth and their families who not only continued to be successful in school, but who served their communities through helping with delivering PPE, cleaning supplies, food, gifts,and other elder donations. You are all making us proud and our community stronger! #NativeDreamsLive

Make that happen for our Native Scholar youth here in Chicago!

We are busy purchasing school supplies as the first day of Chicago Public School draws closer! Every dollar you donate will help these Native Scholars start the new year off right! No donation is too small!
