The BPS family assistance fund supports BPS families who are struggling to meet basic needs. Most often these families do not qualify for existing community supports or have not yet been approved and need immediate assistance. In addition to things like rent and utility assistance, this fund also provides for basic essentials such as hygiene items, household cleaning items, pantry items and basic clothing needs.
The BPS Family Assistance fund alleviates BPS schools’ need to fundraise for these efforts on an individual school basis. In addition to being a centralized resource for our schools, the distribution of items is facilitated through the BPS Student Services program, providing authentic work experiences for BPS students.
