My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Hope Academy Emp, Tulsa, OK, USA
I have been a supporter of Tulsa Hope Academy since it's inception in 2005. It's founder, Debbie McCullough, began this school in the living room of her home, when she found that public schools do not work hard to retain students who are not high performers academically. She worked with these first students to find out what kind of learners they were and found adaptive certified curriculum to help these students fulfill their credits needed to graduate high school. Her population of students shifted dramatically, so that she now serves primarily underprivileged minority students. I am always delighted with her "success stories", the lives of both male and female students, but I have had the pleasure of personally helping a few of the female students acquire clothes to go to job interviews and to listen and pray with them as they go through rough times on the road to graduation and on into tewch school or college.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Seeing the consistency of the program through troubled economic times. Ms. McCullough stays true to the THA's mission, even though aligning with other partners might ease "the burden." If it takes the focus away from her students, then it won't happen.
