Grace has not celebrated her birthday in years...until she came to ECHO. With tears in her eyes and appreciation for something as simple as a "Happy Birthday", her life is being transformed.

This is Karli. She is bright and energetic and loves her family! But Karli fell behind in reading and writing and was becoming discouraged about school. She now spends time every day with a mentor-educator through Camino Scholars, onsite where she lives at Rolling Hills Apartments. Her mentor-educator is working with Karli's mom to get Karli at grade level in the next six months.
