To end the cycle of poverty through advocacy and supportive services for those who desire the opportunity to improve their quality of life.
The BWEL Foundation was established in June 2018 and received its tax exemption in Aug. 2018. Our first initiative is the BWEL Scholar House initiative, a residential program for single parent families in postsecondary education.
Niche: It is the first of its kind in Wake County.
Mission: To empower families and youth to succeed in education and achieve life-long self-sufficiency.
Resolution: It was created on the premise that high-quality, affordable supportive services are essential to school success for low-income single parents and their children. By providing high-quality housing, early childhood education, academic support, and intergenerational programming, BWEL seeks to address the critical issues that impede school success for the single parent family.
