There are currently over 5,000 homeless students attending APS this year. The APS Title I Homeless Project serves students in preschool through high school and includes: outreach advocacy, after-school tutoring, school supplies, clothing and uniforms, food, health and mental service, summer programs, pre-graduation assessments and assistance with various school fees.
Signature Southwest Properties has adopted 22 homeless students at Mountain View Elementary School. In December we hosted a Christmas party. Through the generosity of our agents we were able to provide a wonderful party complete with a visit from Santa Clause, a turkey dinner and a hand-chosen gift for each child. Even more importantly we were able to go to the school, see the children's faces light up when they opened their gift and sit down one on one and talk to them. They seemed to enjoy the attention and care we showed them as much as they enjoyed their gifts.
We have chosen to form a community partnership and long-term relationship with the APS Title One Homeless Project and specifically with the children at Mountain View Elementary School and will be involved through the years.
We hope you will join with us in supporting this effort. Click here for more information, to join a party or to make a contribution.
