Testimonials

Durham School Services

Liz Sanchez, Chief Operating Officer

“We greatly value what the Making Hope Happen Foundation does for the community in San Bernardino. In the words of Christine Gregoire, “Education is the foundation upon which we build our future.” Without the assistance of great organizations such as the Making Hope Happen Foundation, it is challenging to dream and hope boldly. We align ourselves with their values and hope that we can help to nurture students into becoming life-long learners.”

A high quality, continuous education from infant to high school graduate (K-12) is critical for the success of the individual student, their families and our country. Education has always been the portal for the advancement of the student, family and our society.

Under the leadership of the San Bernardino City, County School Districts and California State University, the community is notably successful in view of significant obstacles of low income, crime, transient students and other issues which low-income areas encounter.

We are so pleased to be a part of the Making Hope Happen Foundation and their efforts in developing pathways for students to be successful at every age.
