Good in the Hood Donates Healthy Snacks to Takoda Clients and Students!

Students are happy to have a hearty breakfast!


Our partners at Good in the Hood spent a day assembling 200 breakfast packs for our clients and students at Takoda. The packs included fruit cups, oatmeal, milk, fruit snacks, a cereal bar and cheese.

Our clients can’t always afford to bring a lunch during the day, which makes it tough to focus in class or in meetings with case managers.

As always, thank you, Good in the Hood!








Takoda GED & ABE students gather

Students  regularly share their journey stories that they hope will inspire other adults who are in need of a GED, as well as the adults who have a diploma and want to go back to school but haven’t been in a school setting in a long time.

“Adults need to support themselves financially, yes, but find that without a GED, they are limited in the types of jobs that they can find and find that advancement and pay raises are impossible. Testing feels scary and being judged for what you should know but don’t know is an uncomfortable thought. I’m here to show you that you can and will do this! This team is rooting for your success! -Annessia Swann, Takoda GED Director.
