La Gracia Center: Farmway Village, Caldwell Idaho
After School Tutoring Partner (Level 1)
Farmway Village is the common name for the Caldwell Housing Authority just west of Caldwell near Interstate Highway 84. It was used, in years past, to house Japanese interns and migrant workers. Today it is home to many Latino families who are first and second generation immigrants. There are 1200 to 1400 residents.
The tutoring program is housed in building #79 which is primarily used by the Episcopal Church, La Gracia, for worship and programs. The tutoring program is a joint effort between the church and Families First, a program of Health and Welfare.
Tutor Partners will assist grade-school and middle-school students to complete their homework and work on improving academic skills as needed on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:00 p.m.
