With the generous support of our friends, WE DID IT! Four of our graduates will be moving into their new apartments Friday!

Since 2016, the Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home has celebrated the high school graduation of 16 children and we sat with pride watching each walk the stage and collect their diploma. However, when the lights and flashes of the pomp and circumstance dim, we were left with a bittersweet reality. The youth had earned their diplomas but experience and wisdom was reminding us that at the age of 18, most teens are not ready to navigate the world on their own.

It was then, that the notion of the Lee and Beulah Moor Children’s Home College Program was born. For years, the Board of Directors of the Home has provided scholarship assistance to children who graduate from high school while in our programs who want to attend college or vocational school. The needed support goes directly to the institution to assist with tuition, books, and related fees however financial assistance for living expenses is a struggle. Being 18 or 19 and having no place to call “home” or limited stability is tough for any person. Without assistance with housing, we are finding that many children are unable to achieve their post high school educational goals. They can go to school but they still do not have the financial resources to pay for housing and other necessities.

Through our new College Housing Pilot Program, we intend to break this cycle. The Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home has secured affordable, safe housing for our children seeking their post high school education but we need your help. We will be working to provide the living essentials for each child as the apartments are not furnished.

We are currently working to collect the list of items below in order to help the children as they move on to a new chapter in their lives. You can be a part of this new journey by donating or even sponsoring a child.
