We are cooking up two new community kitchens and the secret ingredient is your generous support!

On August 30, compassionate people like you who care about vulnerable children will come together to support both UMFS Charterhouse School locations in Richmond and Edinburg, VA. Your gift will benefit hundreds of students who struggle with learning and developmental challenges that are rooted in childhood trauma such as abuse and neglect.   

You’ll Give Them Invaluable Life Skills 

Because of your gift, students at both Charterhouse School locations will get to experience the joy of cooking and learn important lessons about nutrition and careers in the food industry. Your donation will equip the program with fresh ingredients, new kitchen appliances, cooking equipment, safety supplies, and will support students who are interested in working in the food industry.  

You’ll Provide Job Training Opportunities 

Your donation will also help us collaborate with community partners who will enhance our student’s learning and workforce development opportunities. Because of you, we’ll be able to host experiential learning events that will give students a leg up in finding a job, such as a coffee cart, student operated bakery and bistro, and student led lunch catering events for in-school events.
