Show Up, Stand Out is a free program from the Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants to help parents get their children to school every day.  We work with families one-on-one to understand the difficulties that surround allowing children to get to school daily.

How does our program work?

If your child has 5 unexcused absences, their school will contact a member of our team who has lived and worked in your neighborhood, to sit down with you, listen and help make a plan that will allow your child to get the best chance for a great education.

Whatever challenge you’re facing – keeping your home, finding a job, raising several kids on your own, getting a ride or filling out paperwork – we’re here to help.

We know it’s not easy, and we want to be your partner. Every plan is personalized for each family and student.

Ready to start? Follow these simple steps. Remember, every call, email and visit is confidential.
