Live In Peace

As our world starts to think about returning to “normal” many in our community are still uncertain how they will pay their bills and cover next month’s rent.

In 2015, Live In Peace was chosen by the County of San Mateo to design and implement a 3-year program that would actively re-engage 80 of Sequoia Union High School District’s most academically disengaged students. The SWAG program is now working with over 60 students, providing tutoring, one-on-one mentoring, case management, and more. With 28 high school graduates in our first year, representing a 100% graduation rate for our seniors, we are now successfully transitioning SWAG students into our College Initiative, positioning our youth to follow their visions to the next level.

We are three groups that have come together at a historically challenging time to support our neighbors struggling the most during this time. To date, we have been able to provide rent support and stabilization for three months to 310 families – 1550 individuals – averaging $1,800 per family.

This means families are able to stay in our community, students can stay in school, businesses are stabilized, and our entire community continues to thrive. Each dollar donated means another family served.
