We transform the lives of students impacted by homelessness and housing instability with personalized tutoring and academic support while advocating for their families as they navigate the educational system.
By providing personalized academic support to students—and critical guidance to their families and caregivers—we interrupt the cycle of homelessness with the power of education.
Thousands of children are homeless in Indianapolis. This includes youth living in shelters, motels, “doubled-up” housing, and on the streets. The problem is far more pervasive than most people realize.
We help these children get the education they deserve. Students experiencing homelessness face many barriers to a full education. We break down these barriers with on-site academic support and critical guidance for caregivers.
When young people thrive, our community thrives. Young people experiencing housing insecurity and homelessness are at an increased risk for a range of health and social issues. Education can pave the way to a brighter future for both them and the wider community.
Our work wouldn’t be possible without strong partnerships with schools and community organizations who share our commitment to serving children affected by housing insecurity and homelessness.
I want to have Brightlane work with me everyday.
This was the best experience I ever had in school.
Tutoring is always the best hour of my entire week.
I love working with each child. It’s sometimes challenging, but always fun. I look forward to each Wednesday. Brightlane Learning has made an impact on me!
Everyday that my kids work with Ms. Amy they tell me all about it! They love working with her and enjoy her time! She has helped them progress so much! Thank you.
My students that participated really enjoyed their time with their tutors and built great connections.
Erin has been a wonderful resource for the kids in my class that she has been working with. They enjoy their time and come back motivated to improve.
