2007-08 Grant Recipients

Guadalupe Saldana, age 9, is one of many children of PSHH’s Carpinteria Camper Park who benefited from the Youth Education Enhancement Program (YEEP) this past year thanks to the support of the Women’s Fund of Santa Barbara. She is the youngest of three children and her parents are mono-lingual Spanish speakers. When the YEEP educator met with Guadalupe’s parents and teacher at the beginning of the school year, her teacher told them that Guadalupe would be held back in third grade unless her grades drastically improved. 

"Thank you for everything you do to help us. I am very lucky living near IVYP where I can get a lot of services. The CBET-Family Literacy School Readiness Class will have counseling sessions again at IVYP. How grateful I am that you will provide this service. Many of my friends are also in need of this service. It would be most welcome and is very much needed. You're wonderful! Thanks again, you always go the extra mile. Sincerely, Rosa."
