Windermere Foundation Presents Funding
to Community Transitional School
The Donation will Help Transport Homeless Youth to and from School
PORTLAND, Ore. – September 23, 2014 – Windermere Stellar recently presented a check at its Southwest Portland branch to Community Transitional School, a private school located in Northeast Portland serving homeless youth in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.
The purpose of Community Transitional School is to provide a stable educational environment to the community’s homeless youth to promote personal and academic growth. In order to succeed, the school has a robust transportation program made up of four buses that transport students to and from school within a 120 square-mile area in and around Portland. Despite the fact that most Community Transitional School students will move multiple times each year, the school boasts 94 percent attendance thanks to the transportation program. The $2,750 donation from the Windermere Foundation will go toward the transportation budget.
Windermere has a long-standing tradition of assisting low-income children and families and giving to the community. In addition to helping Community Transitional School, Windermere associates participate in annual community service projects and donate a portion of every commission to the Windermere Foundation—a nonprofit organization that has raised and donated more than $2 million to programs supporting low-income children and families in the Portland metro and north Oregon coast area.
