Since 1997, Sunday Friends has been offering day-long programs on Sundays that bring together low-income families to work together, learn together, earn together, make spending decisions together and share in the healthy, warm, productive, mutually-supportive community.
Family members engage in hands-on learning activities, create gifts for children in hospitals and for nursing home residents, and prepare and serve healthy meals. They attend classes on financial literacy, parenting effectiveness, English literacy, health, nutrition, violence prevention, computer skills, and STEM education. Through their participation, family members earn “tickets”, the currency of Sunday Friends, redeemable for essential goods from the Treasure Chest.
