Miss Kendra Programs provide a way for our students to give voice to their worries, and know our school is a safe place in which they can receive support.

“We have seen decreases in behavior; we have seen children speak their truths in letters to Miss Kendra and conversations on the carpet. To watch their faces after they speak their truths is like watching someone who has been trying to carry a large weight on their shoulders for a long time finally be able to put it down.”
