Vessels of Hope
A mentoring and networking organization for low income and minority individuals with learning disabilities.
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels. . .
2 Corinthians 4:7
Vessles of Hope is a non-profit organization to help support low- income individuals with learning disabilities, such as Dyslexia.
Low-income minority children and adults who are struggling with learning disabilities are four times more likely than other peers to go undiagnosed or to be incorrectly diagnosed. Their learning disabilities may be inappropriately assessed to be a diminished intellect or diminished capacity for learning. If helpful information, materials, tutorials, services, and supportive networks were more readily available to these children and young adults, they would have greater opportunities to fully develop their potential and achieve. Vessels of Hope was established to offer:
- Build Awareness about Dyslexia and other Learning Disabilities
- Tutoring Referrals
- Life Skills Coaching
- Parent and Peer Support Groups
- Incentives and Motivational Supports
- Service Referrals
- After School Programs
- Educational Resources
