RPS Direct Update - September 10, 2020 (PM)

Dear #RPSStrong Family, This evening, I'm thrilled to shine the spotlight on members of the RPS team who #ServeWithLove outside the typical school setting. First up is Lakeisha Allen (far left in the picture below), a member of our new Center for Families in Transition (C-FIT), led by Erika Schmale. In partnership with Housing Families First, the C-FIT team helps some of our highest need families find and move into stable housing. Since its launch in June, C-FIT has connected 15 RPS families with a place to call home. I had the pleasure of visiting two of those families today, including the Artis Family. Ms. Artis (center in the picture below) is truly an inspiration. C-FIT also supports families with basic needs like food, clothing, and toiletries. If you or a family you know is experiencing a housing transition, please complete C-FIT’s online housing survey or call C-FIT at 804-780-6288 for support. RPS is here for you. Many thanks to Henry Graff from NBC12 for covering this story
