I see the children from Family Resources' BJWL Children's Program at Sheldon Park playing outside so many days. The staff is wonderful and attentive. They specialize in story circles and Math games to help the kids learn. The walls are covered with children's art work. They have very little money because the program is operated in the housing projects where the kids are the poorest. A fun program with lots of hlep for children!

This agency runs the after-school programs for kids. I love it! My daughter goes to BJWL every day and she loves the people and the program.

She gets help with her homework and she reads stories. Every child gets a hot meal for dinner. My daughter likes the arts & crafts and Fun Fridays.

My daughter got better grades this quarter because she goes tot he BJWL after-school program.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Knowing that my child is safe and cared for by wonderful, loving people. My child loved the reading of stories and eating her dinner there at Beverly Jewel Wall Lovelace.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Put up colorful signs at their locations and advertise their program better. All the kids on the streets should be invited in.
