“Every day we see families who are faced with so many struggles. Bresee is a sanctuary and place of assurance for them.” -Fonda Whitehead, Bresee Staff

Volunteer Today!

Last year, over 400 volunteers served at Bresee Foundation as tutors, mentors, workshop leaders, interns and more!


Over the last decade, Bresee has awarded over $500,000 in college scholarships to over 100 alumni.


In 2013, 85% of youth in Bresee’s capped academic program increased their grades on their school report cards (or maintained at least a B average).


Bresee’s professionally-led arts instruction takes place in its on-site art, music, and dance studios and two technology labs.
