What makes sustaining a small neighborhood organization so meaningful?

National giving campaigns have their merits, but nothing compares to seeing the place-based impact of your support at the local level. At the MLK Center, your donations make a real, observable difference in the lives of our community members. While there are several dedicated opportunities for giving, our general support fund subsidizes many of our mission-based social programs. Because of your generosity, we are able to offer a menu of services on a “pay what you can” basis.

Our After-School Literacy Lab has generated significant gains


After School Care

One of the essential programs you’re giving help to is support for after school care. By making this critical intervention, we are able to not only nurture the professional dreams of parents but also ensure their children progress at grade level.

As with our various other programs, our approach to after school care addresses the needs of the whole person. We integrate literacy education with:

  • Wellness Coaching
  • Athletics
  • Leadership Development

Your donations enable us to provide after school care on a “pay what you can” basis, making the dream of a compassionate community, open to all regardless of class or creed, a living reality.
