The new SOAR Learning Center, Jacquelyn Paulk Campus, located on N. Links Ave. in Newtown, recently received $50,000 grant from Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation to support educational programs for the remainder of the 2020 school year through the 2021 four-week summer program. This funding will help provide needed support for teacher salaries, adding an additional day to SOAR's weekly schedule, and allow the organization to hire a new curriculum specialist to expand its services.

SOAR was founded in 2004 by Jacquelyn Paulk; its brand-new, 3,000-square-foot facility has four classrooms with digital interactive boards, a main room for homework, a computer station, kitchen, library and a playground and picnic area.
