Free After-School Supplemental Education
A dream collaboration between Asian American Resource Foundation and Adaptively Education, the new EdTech arm of Best in Class Education.
The objective of the DreamED program is to provide free after-school supplemental education to 1st through 8th grade students from low income families. Students across the nation are falling behind due to the school closures and disrupted education with COVID-19, and lower income families are experiencing even more significant impacts due to lack of resources. The DreamEd program will help these students catch up and get them back on track for educational success.
Student Target For DreamEd
1. Underprivileged students in the community
2. Students between 6 years to 12 years of age – Elementary and middle school.
3. Students who have access to internet and be enrolled in an English School
RAPID RE-HOUSING PROGRAM
Helping Homeless Families
Through our Rapid Re-housing program, we help literally homeless families find and maintain housing. We create pathways for homeless families to enter the financial mainstream and ultimately build brighter futures. Families have access to financial education and develop essential job-skills for employment. Thanks to strategic partnerships with local landlords, faith-based communities, and local shelters, we are able to help families find and maintain housing long-term. Join us today and get involved with this amazing program. You can help out by volunteering time and resources to our cause. Get in touch to learn more about helping out.

Preventing Homeless Families
Assistance is available for families facing imminent eviction in Georgia. Asian American Resource Center is a resource that can be called upon for help in preventing an eviction. It may offer one time rental assistance as well as other support to stop homelessness and pending evictions.
While there are a number of conditions in place as well as an application process, the goal is to assist those that need stable housing. Asian American Resource Center will offer assistance to anyone that meets HUD approved low income levels or the definition of being homeless.
Our key objective is homeless prevention. This is a pro-active approach. For those that are about to be evicted, there may be emergency one time financial assistance for paying rent.
