ACHIEVEability

Posted by Mary Carroll Sullivan | June 12, 2012 / 04:12pm | MidMorning-Show Notes
"Many of our families are the first in their families to graduate from college. We believe that once that first person goes to college and gets that education, that can break the generational cycle of poverty." Former professional basketball player Marcus Allen is achieving great things again - this time in the community. Allen believes that providing housing and promoting and supporting education can break the poverty cycle. Allen heads a program called "ACHIEVEability." Through federal tax credits and public funding, Allen and his staff offer homes and help people get a college degree through student grants and loans.
