Hammond Education Foundation

Program Description

In order to make that vision a reality in the School City of Hammond, a district where 85% of students are enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program, we must recruit, train, and retain the very best educators. We believe that an empowered teaching force is the lever in addressing the very real gaps affecting our school district and community. Our investments reflect that belief.
