Back to School

Hard to believe, we know, but it's nearly time for back-to-school supply shopping! Which can be a very exciting time for kids, unless their families aren't able to provide the tools their kids need. To that end, Human Solutions has put together a list on Amazon of the key items we know the kids who live in our affordable apartment communities need most. That way, you can just click and send - we'll do the rest!

Take a look at our list and send some supplies our way, please! The volumes are high because there are LOTS of kids in our housing, but you can just buy the amounts that work for you. If you're the type to make it a clean sweep and fulfill the whole order, we won't turn you down.

THANK YOU FOR MAKING IT POSSIBLE FOR KIDS IN LOW-INCOME FAMILIES TO START SCHOOL WITH ALL THE TOOLS THEY NEED TO SUCCEED!
