School Update: April - June

Updated: Aug 13, 2021


Although in the beginning stages of fundraising and planning, we are gaining momentum as we educate community-driven organizations regarding the human trafficking issue in Rochester, NY and present the School's goals and needs. Here are some of the great strides we've made since this spring, giving us confidence we will open our doors to students the autumn of 2022.

Additionally, we are excited to have secured the services of a talented grant writer. We continue to be blown away by the aid we have received from so many different people and organizations, particularly in so short a time frame.
