The scholarship program supports youth who have participated in Visions and Pathways programs. Because most of our youth are low income and receive little or no parental support, they are eligible for a high amount of financial aid if they attend a state college or university. Although our youth are expected to work, there is often a gap between their earnings, the school’s financial aid package and college expenses. Visions and Pathways scholarships are used for summer school tuition, housing, books, fees, travel to and from school and other expenses that are not covered by financial aid.
The Lisa Warren Scholarship Fund is named in honor of Lisa Warren, an attorney and a longterm former member of the Board of Trustees. The Lisa Warren Scholarship Fund provides special recognition for youth who have demonstrated a commitment to community service and academic achievement.

The Magic Money, Kristina Lorelle Walker Empowerment Fund. Kristina Walker died in a tragic motorcycle accident. She was twenty-five years old. Because of the severe trauma to her head, facial identification was not possible. Her father was able to perform the identification through a tattoo on her shoulder with the word Magic. The word was written in Kristina’s mother’s handwriting who had passed away three years earlier. Magic Money is used to support women who are pursuing an undergraduate degree. Priority will be given to women who have experienced domestic violence (dv). A survivor herself, Kristina’ s life course was impacted by dv, and she was devoted to empowering women.
