Yancel’s Story: Avesta Housing and Brick & Beam Society

Yancil’s Story: Avesta Housing and Brick & Beam Society

The pandemic challenged educators, care providers, families, and kids across our community, leading to learning loss and other compounding issues. That’s when our community stepped in. Avesta Housing partnered with United Way’s Brick & Beam Society and other organizations to open a weekly Remote Learning Program where students like Yancel access meals, high speed internet, tutors, and a safe environment for students to thrive.
