What is Higher Ground like?

Higher Ground Youth & Family Services is a non-profit organization that engages at-risk youth. The children are typically from second grade up to sixth grade. Our summer program offers a teen program for those 13 years old and older. During the summer, we feed the children lunch, snack, and dinner. In between meals, we have a schedule full of many different activities and programs. Our summer schedule of classes relies heavily on what our leaders are willing to teach. During the school year, we offer tutoring and homework help.

I have other questions, comments, and/or concerns.

Contact us at with any questions, comments, or concerns. We love getting feedback to help make our program better.
