Program Portfolio

CAW's programs are strategically designed to achieve our mission of helping underserved children, youth and families overcome life circumstances to reach their fullest potential - educational, economic and social.

We achieve this by working to equip both children and adults to reorganize and restructure their lives back on the track of success. This is accomplished by combining proved 'best practice' programs, with our own proprietary Cultural Impact Curriculum, which together, have generated industry-leading results.
