Thank you to the team at TGL for renewing their classroom sponsorship once again this year! Through the Square One “Adopt-A-Classroom,” area business and community leaders have the opportunity to partner with Square One to ensure that its classrooms are outfitted with the necessary supplies and tools needed to ensure each child’s success in the classroom. For more information on how you can sponsor a classroom, please contact Kris Allard at kallard@startatsquareone.org.

Whether the team at Square One is teaching children to read and write, inspiring an appreciation of fine arts, providing a nourishing meal, or developing a healthy love of play, everything the agency does is driven by the vision of a bright future for all children, despite the daunting challenges many face at home.

Of the 500+ children Square One serves every day, 100 percent are living at or below the poverty line. Many are living in homeless shelters; struggle with food insecurity; have a parent who is in addiction recovery or post-incarcerated; have suffered from abuse and neglect; and/or are in custody of an appointed legal guardian or foster parent.
