ROBINSON COMMUNITY LEARNING CENTER
In 2016, Holy Trinity established a relationship with Robinson Community Learning Center
in Akron. Working with the teachers and administrators at Robinson, we have been able to provide love and support to an elementary school population in one of Akron's at-risk neighborhoods.
THE PROMISE OF TOMORROW
Holy Trinity Lutheran Church developed a partnership with Robinson Community Learning Center (CLC) in 2016. Through this partnership, Holy Trinity members have the privilege and opportunity of meeting and interacting with some pretty incredible students.
Robinson CLC is a community with many needs. Families in the neighborhood often struggle
to provide the basics for their children. Holy Trinity HELPS to provide some of those basics
by hosting an array of special events and activities for students and their families at the school.
In addition, Holy Trinity works closely with teachers and staff to help facilitate and encourage
regular student attendance and to help empower parents by providing resource information.
Holy Trinity is also excited to support the new Family Resource Center, operated by United Way
of Summit County. The Family Resource Center is a safe, welcoming place where parents
and caregivers can get information, assistance and referrals to community resources.
It connects students and their families to health and social services, academic enrichment
and more, so that students, schools and neighborhoods can succeed.
BELONGS TO SUCH AS THESE."
Holy Trinity's partnership grows each year. Below are just a few ways we work to love and serve the families at Robinson CLC:
We provide backpacks filled with school supplies for all students and extra supplies for all teachers.
We host quarterly engagement events for parents to learn about available community resources.
We helped to develop a youth leadership program … Leadership 360. The program kicked-off with a full day retreat for the inaugural group of 34 3rd through 6th graders.
We help serve the Thanksgiving meal to Kindergarten through 2nd grade students.
We host Math Madness events and provide a meal for families at the Open House.
