Community Transitional School

Grant Amount: $8,000
Project: General Operating Support for 2011-2012 school year
Year: 2011
Location: Portland, OR
About:

Community Transitional School  teaches Portland area children who are at risk for school failure due to their families’ unstable lives of poverty, transience and homelessness.  The school provides many of life’s basics: breakfast and lunch, clothes, school supplies and bus rides to and from school, no matter how often students move around the metro area.

The PreK-8th grade school’s goal is to provide a stable learning place for these children so they can begin to see that they have choices, and so they can begin to gather the skills they need to make them.  Almost all of the students come with large gaps in their education.  This general operations grant allowed the school to meet their budget and continue to serve an increased number of homeless children and youth.   The 2011-2012 school year saw a huge increase in the number of students served, as well as those on the waiting list, highlighting the need to expand.

 

5th and 6th graders wrote free-form poems titled “Wishes I Keep to Myself.” Here are excerpts from four of them:

CTS schoolbus

Wish I was a normal girl
in this world
Someone who has
a dad, lives in a house
and has a friend.

Wish I didn’t have to worry
if me and
my family will find somewhere
to sleep tonight.

Wish to be appreciated for the way I am —
the guy who likes the
opposite of everyone else.

Wish mom had a job
to care for us,
and to have money to live
in this heavy town.
