Homeless students face adversities in academics, health, and home stability as well as being susceptible to risk factors, including academic failure, truancy, continued homelessness, and malnutrition. Afterschool care programs are designed to promote social wellbeing as well as a form of stability for children. The purpose of this project was to write a grant for Project Hero to increase their afterschool care program from one day a week to five days a week for the homeless population. The amount requested would allow for the program to offer assistance to the homeless students with school supplies, nutrition, health exams, mentoring, and tutoring. Funds would be provided to Project Hero through the Magnolia School District, which strives to enrich the lives of underprivileged children and families by maximizing their academic achievement and developing positive social interaction in order to increase the esteem in their students.
