We interview applicants then present the results and recommendations to the Board of directors. This is a financial needs based fund and need must be established but we also look for commitment, desire, and capability in each applicant.
The board will recommend the best option (e.g., College, Voch/Tech School, or treatment program) for each recommended applicant. Our hope is to never say "no" to any applicant so even if they are not ready for higher education we will assist them in finding the help they need.
Our oversight committee ensures prudent use of all funds used in supporting the students needs by reviewing outcomes and metrics on a regular basis.
