Our History

How it all started

Paul’s Place began in the fall of 2000 as a response to the mainly Haitian-American children living in the neighborhood surrounding the church who were in the need of a safe haven and homework help.  The Vestry recognized the need, contributed the seed money and the program was formalized with the hiring of a full-time Director.

What we have accomplished

Since 2000, the after school has served more than 125 elementary, middle and high school students providing them with an environment filled with caring mentors who tutor the students and assist with homework to improve academic performance, social skills and self-confidence.  Our goal is to give the students the tools and support they need to stay in school, graduate and go on to college or viable jobs.
