Although our service area is in Silicon Valley, one of the wealthiest regions in the nation, the Morgan Hill Unified School District reports that 40% of all students are eligible for free or reduced lunch (very low income). Many more families earn slightly more and may not be eligible for free lunch but are still low income and struggle day to day. Currently, the Morgan Hill Unified School District is the Foundation’s largest referral partner; they refer families in need to many of our programs. Community Solutions, the South County’s largest social service organization is also a referral partner.
The Foundation focus is to provide services and programs that are unique, fill a service gap, improve self -esteem and foster dignity and respect.
