A Bike for Every Child & Soaring As Eagles

"We are so happy to work with our friends and fellow partners...each providing something the other doesn't, but together providing a full compliment of care and response." 

~Kelly Cascaden, ABFEC Executive Director

December should be a magical time for children, and these two Partners always seek to inspire and empower children and families. They collaborate in Title 1 school events, bringing bikes to students.

ABFEC believes every child should experience the freedom and joy of riding and owning their own bike. They provide free bikes to children 12 and younger and on a sliding scale for teens and adults. New and recycled bikes may be dropped off at lower level parking deck, preferably M-F, 12-6 PM. Donations are gratefully accepted to fix bikes with new parts and distribute bikes and helmets.

When schools shut down for COVID, SAE established a Virtual Learning Lab to provide remote tutors and IT support to students. They offer structured programs including Sista Sista for girls and their female caregivers and Hangin’ With The Fellas for boys and their male caregivers. They focus on leadership, authority and wisdom, and giving families an opportunity to be together to talk about anything. 

We are grateful to have these organizations on campus, working together to lift up children and families.
