We believe in a two-generational approach to transforming the lives of single parents and their families.
It's about more than tuition.
In addition to providing scholarships for tuition and childcare assistance, Raise the Barr (RTB) collaborates with other charitable organizations and corporate partners to provide single parent families access to a variety of comprehensive community resources. We work together to remove the obstacles to higher education by providing access to such services as affordable safe housing, empowerment and financial literacy training, and job placement and coaching. We believe in a two-generational holistic approach to transforming the lives of single parents and their families.
We continue to seek charitable nonprofit organizations and corporations that are interested in helping us develop sustainable programs that can be replicated across the country.
Raise the Barr is a partner in the Aspen Institute Ascend Network, a network of leading nonprofit, philanthropic, research, and policy organizations incubating and implementing two-generation (2Gen) strategies across the country.
