Perla enrolled her three sons, Andrew, Adrian, and Anderson, into the Operation Pathways Brighten-Up afterschool program. Recently, Perla contacted her resident services coordinator to express gratitude at how well her sons were doing. Perla told the resident services coordinator that since participating in the afterschool program, her sons were doing their chores, demonstrating better manners, and even helping her around the house. Perla said that she attended a parent-teacher conference and her sons’ teachers reported that all of them demonstrated improvement in the classroom, turning in assignments on time and frequently participating in classroom discussions. Perla gives credit to NHPF and Operation Pathways for making a positive change in her family’s life.
