Letter from the Board Chair and Founder/CEO Dear Friends of School on Wheels, Since 2001, School on Wheels has provided over 45,000 hours of one-on-one tutoring to Indianapolis youth experiencing homelessness. Through our academic intervention programs, we have impacted the lives of thousands of homeless youth by equipping them with the educational tools necessary to achieve success in life and break the cycle of homelessness. We could not have realized these successes without you. Your generous gifts and contribution of thousands of volunteer hours have made each of our programs thrive. The support you provide to School on Wheels year after year offers stability to our students and a brighter future made possible by education. This past year, we have watched our students’ grades improve, noted their increased confidence and witnessed homeless parents of students become more engaged in their child’s education. We are pleased to present to you - our volunteers, donors, partners and friends - our program and financial results. Each one of you played a role in our success and we are most grateful.

Thank you for your continued support, endorsement, friendship and commitment. For the kids,

Alice Morical Sally Bindley Board Chair Founder and CEO


The Mission

To provide one-on-one tutoring and educational advocacy for school-aged children impacted by homelessness.

The Vision

To equip children impacted by homelessness with the educational tools necessary to achieve success in life and break the cycle of homelessness.


Tutors in Action Tutors in Action is an academic intervention program that provides one-on-one after-school tutoring to children experiencing homelessness throughout Indianapolis. School on Wheels brings more than 400 volunteers to nine partner shelter locations and one Indianapolis Public School, and provides tutoring sessions to the youth at these facilities up to four times a week. Our trained tutors use multiple approaches in working with these students, including reading together, journaling and

homework help. All educational activities used in the program are developed in alignment with Indiana state standards and offer a hands-on approach to introducing multiple concepts to students in grades K – 12. In addition to these academic intervention and support services, School on Wheels ensures every student is prepared for the school year by providing school uniforms and a backpack filled with school supplies to each of the children it serves.

Ignite Learning Ignite Learning is a program dedicated to working with the parents of School on Wheels students to help them overcome challenges in facilitating their child’s education. The majority of the students who participate in School on Wheels programming come from single parent families. While some of our students’ parents have a high school education, only 3% have a college education. For these overburdened parents, finding the time or even confidence to help their children with their school work can be a struggle.


Through Ignite Learning, School on Wheels Program Coordinators hold weekly office hours with parents, connect students’ teachers to parents and conduct workshops to educate parents on how to navigate the education system. The primary goal of Ignite Learning is to actively engage parents in their child’s education, increasing the possibility that School on Wheels students break the cycle of homelessness and achieve academic success.

Research shows that homeless students have lower educational achievement among all grades than their housed peers. Our academic intervention programs are provided at absolutely no cost to those we serve or to our partner locations. Each program is designed to provide necessary educational support to homeless students and help them realize the value of their education in breaking the cycle of homelessness.

“This program empowers. School on Wheels’ employees and volunteers don’t see the homelessness; we see the child, the potential. These children are not defined by their conditions. They are incredibly smart, funny, loving children, and School on Wheels gives them a chance to believe.” - Wesley W., tutor 5

“This volunteer experience has impacted me well beyond my expectations. The unconditional love that these children bring me each week is immeasurable. I get so much more back than I give! The hour I spend each week volunteering is the one I look forward to the most. It is my favorite hour of the week, and it goes the fastest of any, as well. I see myself being a lifelong volunteer for School on Wheels.� - Melissa S., tutor


Meet Lily School on Wheels Student

Like many of her peers, Lily, a senior at Southport High School, is applying to colleges and making plans for the future. She has selected Indiana University as her school of choice, but has also applied to Butler and Ball State. Her love of working with children helped her narrow her decision to major in Elementary Education, with a focus in Special Education and Spanish. This choice was in part cultivated by the early childhood education classroom at Southport High School that gave Lily hands-on experience working with youth, resulting in her desire to teach preschool or kindergarten. While Lily was busy working hard towards her future, her family was experiencing homelessness. Lily, her brother and mom were without a home for 15 months, and during that time they lived in three separate School on Wheels’ partner sites. Lily attended tutoring at each location over the course of a school year, never wavering

from her goal of building a bright future for herself. She admits it wasn’t easy, but her advice to other students is to stay focused. Karen Routt, School on Wheels Program Manager says of Lily,

“It’s uplifting to see the optimism that Lily carried with her. While others might have let their circumstances defeat them, Lily worked through every obstacle, and was always focused on her goals and the possibilities that lay ahead. ” This year, Lily was one of a select group of students in the nation awarded a $2,000 LeTendre Scholarship at the National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. Since 1998, this national award has been bestowed upon deserving students. We are so proud to see Lily being recognized for her hard work and dedication to continuing her education.


Summer Enrichment Arts & Technology Each summer, School on Wheels delivers programs to help combat summer learning loss. This summer, School on Wheels brought the Summer Enrichment Arts and Technology (S.E.A.T.) program to Salvation Army Barton Center. For four weeks, School on Wheels facilitated academic, technology and character development activities for youth ages 5-17. These youth were introduced to Voyager Learning

interactive education software on iPads, designed to strengthen aptitude in math or reading. Additionally, Amazon John of Silly Safaris and artists Dave and Holly Apeel helped youth learn more about respect through hands-on activities that focused on animals and art. This summer, we united arts and technology to combat summer learning loss and help prepare our students for the coming school year.

School on Wheels is honored to have been chosen by the United Way as the Nonprofit Volunteer Program of the Year in 2013. The United Way of Central Indiana Corporate Volunteer Council Awards recognize the achievements of our community’s many outstanding volunteers, nonprofit organizations and employee volunteer programs. The awards honor those who have gone above and beyond in their volunteering on behalf of the Central Indiana community.

Thank you. Our Volunteers Make a Difference.

Only 52% of homeless students test at or above the state standards for reading, and only 50% for math. That’s why we focus on integrating language arts and math activities into each tutoring session. 8

“The School on Wheels volunteering experience … teaches me how to be a better human being; to be patient, to be joyous, to be satisfied with even minor things. It brings me immense pleasure when I can even minimally influence a child’s future. Last semester, when I queried a very smart 6th grader what she wants to be when she grows up, she said that she wants to be a scientist. I still remember her pleasantly surprised face when I told her that I am a scientist and that she will make a great one.” - Narayanan P., PhD MSIS, tutor 9

“I have fun at tutoring playing math games. The tutors are nice and they help me with my reading.” – School on Wheels Student


Meet Shelly School on Wheels Parent

Each student we serve is dealing with a different set of circumstances. For some, it is their first time experiencing homelessness, but others have never known a home of their own. Some of our students not only have siblings, but also have cousins or other relatives who need care and attention. Some students have two parents, while many only have one. School on Wheels understands that by providing a network of support to the parents of our students, we can further impact the youth we serve by meeting their unique circumstances head-on. As we deepen our engagement with parents through Ignite Learning, our Program Coordinators at each partner location are reporting how this program is helping parents continually embrace the value of education and motivation for their children. Shelly, a mother of three boys, has one of the top attendance records at the parent workshops we offer, and is always looking to integrate new

methods into her parenting. After her two oldest boys attended our summer enrichment program at Salvation Army Barton Center in July, Shelly implemented the same ticketing system School on Wheels utilized to reward positive behavior at home. Her sons have been attending tutoring since 2012, and in that time she has attended 20 Ignite Learning sessions. Each week she makes contact with the School on Wheels Program Coordinator at her location. She looks for her sons’ orange progress sheets after each tutoring session so that she knows what homework still needs to be completed after tutoring is over. She says of the program,

“This has helped my kids with reading and doing their homework a lot. I love this program!� At School on Wheels, we celebrate parents like Shelly who are making education a priority.

75% of language arts,

reading and spelling grades were a C- or better in marking period four

77% of individual class grades were a C- or better in marking period four

“I tutor for School on Wheels because it’s fun. After all the homework is done, getting a hug and a big drawing of a heart with ‘I love you’ scrawled across it from a little one is hard to beat.” - Peter C., tutor 13

“There are so many exciting and rewarding aspects to the work being done at School on Wheels. Their tutoring and advocacy programs enable the great children of our city to reach out and grab opportunities in their education paths that may not have been there before. To be even a small part of contributing to a program that empowers the youth of Indianapolis in such an impactful way is truly an honor.” –John and Carrie, School on Wheels donors

How You Can Help Volunteer


Volunteers are integral to School on Wheels’ service model. Committing just one hour each week to tutor a student at one of our ten partner locations helps break the cycle of homelessness through education. If you can’t commit one hour a week, tutoring teams, corporate service projects and office volunteers all help us make a difference.

SPOKES is a committee of young professionals who care about education in Indianapolis, think creatively about how to address the needs of the youth we serve and are passionate about the School on Wheels mission. SPOKES members meet on a regular basis, and are responsible for planning awareness and fundraising events for School on Wheels each year.

Make an In-Kind Donation

Make a Financial Contribution

It takes more than tutoring to make sure our students are prepared to learn. To help meet other unmet needs of these homeless children, you can host a uniform drive, shop for healthy snacks or help us obtain program and office supplies. Contact the School on Wheels office for a list of needs.

We rely solely on financial donations to serve the homeless children of Indianapolis. You can make an individual contribution, corporate donation, host an event or even plan a fundraiser. There are countless ways to support our kids!

Among homeless children, there are twice the number of students with learning disabilities and three times the number of students with emotional and behavioral problems. We tutor three to four nights a week and have access to Individualized Education Plans for our students, provided by each school, in order to meet each student’s unique needs.

I believe ALL students can be successful if they are given the right support. SPOKES helps level the educational playing field by organizing supply drives and hosting educational and social events focused on spreading the message of School on Wheels. I am honored to be a part of SPOKES and the School on Wheels family! – Alison P., SPOKES member 17

We gratefully acknowledge the donors who support School on Wheels.
