Philanthrophy

One of the greatest gifts you can ever give back to someone is to encourage, guide and mentor those individuals who need help and want to receive. We were introduced to Hide in Plain Sight from a dear friend of mine and we fell in love with their mission and who they are representing.  Ed Moore currently is a Board Member and Chairing HIPS Mentoring Program.

College/Work Scholarships

Scholarship applications are accepted throughout the year for homeless students who wish to pursue a post-secondary education through a college, vocational school, certificate or apprenticeship program.  These scholarships are intended to remove the barriers a homeless student faces like tuition assistance, books, fees, transportation, food and housing. Final approval for scholarship recipients is determined by the Board of Directors. 

K-12 Scholarships

K-12 Scholarships are awarded on an individual basis by Hide In Plain Sight through the school for students to attend an educational field trip or participate in extracurricular activities to promote and enrich the student's education. Final approval for scholarship recipients is determined by the Board of Directors.
