Beyond Housing + Normandy Schools Collaborative
Over the years Beyond Housing has worked closely with the Normandy School District to create a successful learning environment for students. Beyond Housing provides educational and family support through various programs like the Pagedale Family Support Center, providing an afterschool and summer program for students, Viking Advantage, a matched savings program that helps students save for college, our Family Engagement Liaisons, staff embedded within each school to help families with basic needs to remove barriers to academic performances, and our wrap-around service coordination, a holistic approach to reduce barriers in education. This year to date, our Education department has provided these services to 1,988 students within the district.

To set Normandy students up for success this school year, we need your support.

We invite you to sponsor a student’s future today and help make this year’s Beyond the Backpack a success!
