In their mission to encourage students to develop enlightened minds and compassionate spirits, the children and teachers of Wesley Prep have become particularly precious to many of the clients at Austin Street Center.

From serving meals to decorating cookies, and playing BINGO to creating poetry, the school’s 4th graders have developed a unique bond with the women in The Sisterhood. By exhibiting unconditional positive regard and respect, these children help alleviate the isolation and alienation often felt by people experiencing homelessness. For this reason, we honored Lori Cousino, her 4th grade class, their parents, and the faculty and staff of Wesley Prep as our 2018 Legacy Award recipients at the 18th Annual Humble Beginnings Award Luncheon!
