The Georgia Compassion Project has donated $65,000 to Children’s Restoration Network, with $55,000 of it to be used for the New Hope Scholarship Program.

This program provides homeless high school seniors living in shelters and group homes a scholarship to attend college or technical school.

The remaining $10,000 will be used as follows: $5,000 to help develop curriculum to train volunteers to be paired with homeless high school students that are not yet seniors that have the desire to go to college or technical school.

Additionally the remaining $5,000 will be used to improve the Children Restoration Network’s database reports and tracking.

Cliff Kinsey, CEO of Children’s Restoration Network, said, “We are thrilled to have the support of the Georgia Compassion Project again this year. Since December we have had three New Hope Scholarship recipients graduate.

Two with a four-year college degree and one with a technical school degree. We could not do this impactful work without the support of foundations like the GCP.”

The core work of Children’s Restoration Network is educationally based.

This group is trying to break the cycle of homelessness through providing an opportunity for struggling young men and women to achieve a higher education.
