Student Success at Home – A FREE Program from Friendly House

Distance learning is still relatively new. At times, it can feel confusing, overwhelming, and even out of reach for some.

Thanks to a generous grant from Oregon Health Authority, Friendly House is developing a pilot program to offer free support to students and families and improve their experience. Student Success at Home aims to alleviate and elevate by providing resources, technical and academic support, and social interaction so students can stay engaged and families can feel equipped and capable.

You do not need to be enrolled with Friendly House After School to benefit from this program. Interested families can complete a one-time questionnaire at FriendlyHouseInc.org to help us understand your specific needs and tailor our support. If internet connectivity or other technical issues are a barrier to completing the form easily, call Chris at (503)935-5269. 

Chapman’s Dining for Dollar$ Friends

Dining for Dollar$ not only raises significant funds for Chapman but also builds community.  It gives us a way for Chapman families to connect with each other and with our neighborhood restaurant community.  Even though Dining for Dollar$ is on hold for this school year, please take a moment to check out all our Chapman Dining Friends from last school year and consider them for a dining, take out, or gift card giving option.  It’s our turn to be their friend this school year.  Look forward to Dining for Dollar$ events building community one meal at a time when the time is right.

* Tap & Table, Xica Cantina, and Olympia Provisions are currently only operating from east side locations.
