A Year to Remember

What a year 2014 has been! This time last year we were getting excited for the Winter Olympics, now we’re brushing snow off our cars in Southern California! There have been up and downs in all of our lives, but as we look back on the year, the moments we remember most are usually the times spent with our family and friends, sharing love with one another and making more memories.

SONY DSCThe Leaven has had an amazing and joyful year, full of success. This year we opened our tenth center and won an award for educational excellence. We’ve helped children at all our programs improve their reading and math skills, and helped communities continue to rise. We’ve continued to help reduce crime in some of California’s neediest neighborhoods, and send love and support to our troops through The Leaven Gives Back.

All of this amazing success would not be possible without partners like you. Because of you, we now have more than 6,500 likes on Facebook! This translates to people who want to know more about the great work of The Leaven.  We are growing and looking to open even more new centers in new communities in 2015. Every day, Leaven kids are learning to read and experiencing the joy of learning.

Thank you for your support this year. We are looking forward to ringing in the New Year with you! Together we are helping kids and communities rise.
