School Supply Drive

When you come home from prison and you’re struggling to make ends meet, school supplies for your kids can be a luxury. We are looking for community members who are willing to “adopt” a Concordance family for whom they will help furnish school supplies. Please consider supporting Concordance Academy in our School Supply Drive by donating below.

If you are interested in learning more or signing up to help a participant’s family, please contact Lisa Cohn at Thank you for your assistance in setting up these recently reunited families for joyful, abundant, and purposeful lives.

Thank you to everyone that donated to our School Supply Drive. With your generosity we collected over $2,000 for our participants and their families.
