Next phase of successful Student Homelessness Initiative Partnership program
County Executive Jan Gardner today announced the next phase of the New Horizons Frederick program called the New Horizons Academy. The five-week program is coordinated through the Student Homelessness Initiative Partnership, known as SHIP of Frederick County. Starting on July 1, the program will provide academic training to 60 Frederick County Public Schools students from five high schools who are experiencing homelessness.
“We live in a community that cares and has taken action to help hundreds of students,” commented Executive Gardner. “SHIP and many community partners are to be commended for giving hope and making a difference in the academic and personal lives of many students who face real life challenges.”
