Bridging academic and emotional gaps in the lives of children.

Minding the Gap comes alongside children to bridge gaps that all too often exist in their academic and emotional formation. We strengthen children in their academic and emotional journey by teaching reading skills, by building self-esteem, and by promoting healthy connections to caring adults. We proactively identify and give a boost to kids before they get left behind.

Testimonial Icon

As Principal of Warford Elementary, I have confidence that Minding the Gap staff will respond to their call by creating love and trust for students in the community. I have seen this firsthand with many of their members working with students at my school through the Caring for Kids partnership. Pastor Zack has been a champion for Warford Elementary. He orchestrates great plans to garner volunteers to support my school with amazing follow through. They give families resources. but most importantly, give students the time and attention needed to succeed in school through mentorship. His passion for working with staff and students right in his community is to be honored. Our school is blessed that we have a partner who is a champion for children.
