Your donations to the Mid Dakota Clinic "Black to the Future" Team's campaign make a big impact in Bismarck/Mandan:

  • Provides tutoring to struggling readings
  • Ensure children get designated mentors
  • Helps caseworkers address the barriers to a good education and a stable family, caused by poverty, mental illness, unemployment, homelessness, and more.

One strategy to fight poverty long-term is to help the children in our community succeed early in life. There are important milestones along the way that drastically increase a child’s likelihood of success.  For example, 75% of the students who start Kindergarten reading behind their peers never catch up. Additionally, if a child can’t read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade, they are four times more likely to drop out of high school.  Join the effort to match students with tutors and resources to help them succeed.
