School for Homeless Children Is Expanding

| March 1, 2012 | 0 Comments

A  celebration took place this past month  to showcase the new Monarch School campus at 1625 Newton Avenue, just south of Petco Park. The current site will be undergoing a massive remodel to become a state-of-the-art school serving homeless youth. The community has supported a long campaign to find the best site for the school and helped raise over half of the funds needed to complete the project.

Monarch School is a public school exclusively for children impacted by homelessness. It operates through a unique partnership with the public school system and the organization’s nonprofit arm so that it can provide resources, programs and opportunities that eliminate the barriers to a quality education. Monarch School also supplements homeless students’ basic needs, including food, hygiene kits, clothing, school supplies and more.

The Monarch School board of directors' facilities team includes Bennet Greenwald, Scott Kaats, Mark McLaren, Ric Davy, Jim McMillan, Ronnie Froman, Jessica Gonzales, Jennifer Robinson, and Rosalie Merks,
