Bank of America Celebrates Valentine's Day with Project Grow 

(Bank of America volunteers pictured with Valentine's Day themed gift bags for all Project Grow students) 

Special Valentine's Day thank you to our friends at Bank of America (BoA) who recently visited with our Project Grow afterschool students. 

The BoA team presented to each of the three Grow classrooms on how banking relates directly to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) as well as prepared Valentine's themed candy bags for each of our kids. Our students were interested in learning what it takes to become a banker, how to budget for buying a car, and how someone prepares for retirement (to name a few great questions for our visitors). Bank of America’s Nikki Morley shared about her experience participating in the project. Click to read more. 

Adopt-A-Family CEO, Matt Constantine, featured in the Palm Beach Post 


Thank you to the Palm Beach Post for featuring our CEO, Matt Constantine, in a recent Monday Meeting profile piece. We've included a paragraph from the feature below. To read a full-text version, click on the image above or link below.

What you tell young people about your business: That being able to help families is an incredible honor. People come to us at a time of need and it’s often not easy for the families we serve to reach out for help. They are vulnerable and anxious to get their lives back on track. For so many families it is just one incident, like a medical issue, that creates a cycle that leads them to homelessness. To see them get back on their feet, to be able to see a mother graduate from college, a family buy their own home, or a student get accepted to college are feelings that are indescribable. -Matt Constantine, CEO
