Carrero

From the President On behalf of the Board of Directors, administration, staff, participants and families that are served through all of Lawrence Family Development, Inc. d/b/a Lawrence Prospera’s programs, we present this Annual Report which covers July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020. This FY’20 Annual Report reflects our unwavering commitment to our mission: Strengthening the individuals and families of Lawrence through the development of thriving neighborhoods. FY’20 was an interesting year for everyone. During the first 8 months of FY’20, the organization made great strides forward; however, what will be remembered most is the pandemic, the shutdown and the quarantine. Our major strategic accomplishments this year included:  Initiating our first Annual Giving Campaign;  Opening the “SISU Prints” screen printing shop and the “SISU Builds” wood working program;  Completing construction of the YouthBuild house at 211 Jackson Street and selling it to a first-time homeowner family;  Piloting a child care program at the Quintana Center during adult educational programming;  Moving the organization’s administrative offices to the newly-renovated Orange Wheeler House to open up space for Lawrence Family Development Charter School’s programming at 34 West Street. Like the rest of the country, which closed down in March, Lawrence Prospera and the greater Lawrence community were feeling the effects of COVID-19. We are proud to report during this time, we came together as an organization and adapted our programming and our way of serving the community to fit the demands of this trying time using the tools available. Our most tangible accomplishment during this time was the launching of a virtual educational system for the Quintana and SISU programs and the provision of food and basic necessities for SISU and Lawrence Family Development Charter School families through a weekly delivery program. We hope that this 2019-2020 Annual Report reflects our commitment to continuing to meet the needs of Lawrence through the mission of Lawrence Prospera and prompts readers and the Board of Directors to share our satisfaction for the future of Lawrence Prospera and its impact on the community. In addition to the individual program goals and accomplishments, Lawrence Prospera continues to move forward with our Strategic Plan with goals of professionalism and excellence in all aspects of the organization by being a community-focused, non-profit service agency. Sincerely, Gregory Spurr, President Lawrence Prospera Ralph Carrero, Executive Director Lawrence Prospera LAWRENCE PROSPERA FY’2019–2020 ANNUAL REPORT PAGE 1

Our History… In 1991, with the support of the Anne E. Casey Foundation, the board and administration of the Lawrence Youth Commission (LYC) created the entity, now known as Lawrence Family Development. Inc. d/b/a Lawrence Prospera. Over the past 30 years, LFD, Inc. has launched and managed successful projects with a focus on education, community and leadership development. Some of those projects included a Career Center offering after-school programs—such as, Proyecto Alcance, Project Reach, City CORE, an Adult Leadership Development Program, which helped create a new generation of leaders immersed in the heritage and culture of the City’s immigrant community and the Parent Mobilization Project (PMP) which conducted resident-led, community-wide needs assessments. Our Evolution...building on the past to respond to the needs of today... Lessons learned from the Career Center, the AmeriCorps project and the urgent need to offer an education/ workplace program for seriously at-risk youth led to the creation of YouthBuild-Lawrence. Now, in its twenty-fifth cycle, YouthBuild-Lawrence continues to prepare young adults to earn their HiSET, gain job readiness skills, develop self-confidence and feel ownership in their community through building homes for low-income Lawrence families. The success of YouthBuild-Lawrence laid the foundation for LFD, Inc. to manage the City’s Safe and Successful Youth Initiative Grant Program and launch the SISU Youth Development Program. Building on the Adult Leadership Development Program and the Parent Mobilization Project (PMP), LFD, Inc. launched the Citizenship for New Americans’ Program. Volunteer facilitators from the PMP became citizenship and ESL educators and have assisted hundreds of immigrants attain United States citizenship. In 2006 the Maria del Pilar Quintana Family Center opened as the permanent home for LFD, Inc.’s adult education programs and continues to provide programming and support to the community of 1st , 2nd and 3rd generation Lawrencians. Through the PMP, the need for culturally-appropriate and highquality public education in Lawrence rose to the forefront of issues for which Lawrence Family Development began to address. 1991 Inaugural meeting of Lawrence Family Development and Parent Mobilization Project launches 1989 Career Center established at Lawrnece Public Library City CORE Program becomes one of the first AmeriCorps programs in Massachusetts LAWRENCE PROSPERA FY’2019–2020 ANNUAL REPORT Education Fund, Inc. as a 501(c)(3) 1992 1993 YouthBuildLawrence Opens Lawrence Family Development Charter School opens as one of Massachusetts’ first charter schools LFDEF, Inc. receives funding to start Citizenship for New Americans’ Program PAGE 4 1995

In the mid-1990’s, with the support of LFD, Inc.’s Board, a group of committed educators engaged parents and submitted an application to open one of Massachusetts’ original fourteen public charter schools. Since its inception, the Lawrence Family Development Charter School has operated as an independent Massachusetts public school district and is an example of the power of community engagement. Raising Scholarships for Today’s Students and Endowing Scholarships for the Future The LFDCS Scholarship Fund and the Patricia Foley Karl Endowment Scholarship Fund, named for the founding Executive Director/Superintendent of Lawrence Prospera and the Lawrence Family Development Charter School, ensures that promising 8th graders are able to attend a private secondary school, if they choose. For the past ten years, LFD, Inc. has dispersed 4-year scholarships to LFDCS graduates who have attended some of New England’s most prestigious and rigorous secondary schools. Providing the Places and Spaces where we are “developing thriving neighborhoods ” Today, facility assets of LFD, Inc. are valued at over eleven million dollars, and LFD, Inc. ensures stabile, safe and welcoming structures that foster LFD, Inc.’s mission and revitalizes its neighborhoods. LFD continues to update and renovate the City’s real estate. In FY’20 , LFD, Inc. completed the building and sale of a singlefamily home on Jackson Street to a first-time homebuyer and began renovations and updates to the Orange Wheeler House on Haverhill Street. In the coming year, LFD will also begin to renovate the unused side of the Railroad Street campus. With our wealth of real estate, LFD, Inc. has developed and fostered lasting relationships with community partners. For over 20 years, LFD, Inc. has leased building space and land and provided management services to the Lawrence Family Development Charter School. LFD, Inc. also provides operating space and management services to the Lawrence Early Achievement Partnership (LEAP) program and Casa Dominicana, a small non-profit dedicated to promoting Dominican culture in Lawrence.

FY’20 proved to be an interesting year at the SISU Center. It was a year when SISU participants stepped up and again responded to adversity, whether it was on the streets or during a nationwide pandemic. While FY’20 saw many achievements, it will forever be known as the year of the pandemic. On the verge of launching several new initiatives, the country went into quarantine, and SISU was forced to adapt to the “new normal.” Despite the adversity of the 2nd half of FY’20, SISU endured and has grown stronger. “SISU Prints” Screen Printing Shop In January, LFD launched the long awaited “SISU Prints” Screen Printing Shop at the SISU Center. Following a 16week curriculum, SISU participants developed the knowledge and skills to work at all levels of the screen printing business. Participants developed an understanding of basic color and style, graphic design, varied levels of printing and finally the operating of a four-head screen printing press. Prior to the pandemic, SISU had completed two major printing jobs: creating t-shirts and sweatshirts for the Lawrence Against Violence March and t-shirts for the Massachusetts YouthBuild Coalition’s 20th Anniversary Statehouse Day. Like the program, the SISU screen printing presses have restarted. Working in small cohorts, SISU participants are back in the shop working with staff to print custom facemasks. They are also working on a logo and design print job for the Massachusetts’ Safe and Successful Youth Initiative Coalition. 14 In Reported Gun-Related Incidents in Lawrence *FY’20 compared to FY’19 LAWRENCE PROSPERA FY’2019–2020 ANNUAL REPORT Escleury moved from the Dominican Republic when he was seven years old. He came to the SISU Center in 2019 as a member of the YouthBuild program with the goal of learning a trade. At the SISU Center, Escluery participated in HiSET Prep., Workforce Development, Art and driving permit classes. He volunteered to clean up local parks and worked with the SISU Landscaping Team. After earning his OSHA 10 certification, Escleury joined the SISU Carpentry Program and worked on the YouthBuild house. When the pandemic hit, Escleury found himself stuck at home. As the quarantine dragged on, he realized that he could not sit around and let time continue to pass without taking actions towards his goals. Escleury began communicating more with the SISU Team, and in early July he passed the Class D passenger permit test. He also enrolled in an Asbestos and Deleading training program and become a licensed asbestos worker. Escleury now works for a local company specializing in residential and commercial environmental projects. His future goals consist of passing his HiSET, earning his full Class D Driver's License and becoming a supervisor at his job. For more of Escleury’s story, visit our website. PAGE 6

Wellington was born and raised in Lawrence. From an early age, he was surrounded by factors that influenced his way of thinking and behavior. Motivated by the bad influences around him, his goal was to make a name and a reputation for himself. By 16 , he had dropped out of school and was arrested for the first time. By 18 he was a father, and by 20 he was serving 2 years. Growing up, Wellington had a passion for breaking things and reworking them. He would watch in awe when he passed by work sites. At SISU he rediscovered his passion for construction. As a member of the SISU Construction Team, he worked on the YouthBuild house and spends his days working on countless projects in the shop. Wellington knows where he wants to be and is taking the steps to get there; whether it is completing his HiSET, finishing his probation or obtaining his driver’s license. Although it doesn't seem like a big deal to many, he knows that with the passion and drive for his craft, a driver’s license will open up so many doors for him. Wellington hopes to one day build his own home knowing that he earned that house. For more of Wellington’s story, visit our website. Kassandra grew up in Lawrence with 8 siblings. Her parents, although not together, emphasized the importance of family above all else. “Kass” has never been keen on rules, but “family first” is the one rule that she has always been able to follow without any hesitation. In 2016, Kass lost a brother to the streets and her future lost importance. She began acting out at school and skipping and failing classes. After being referred to the SISU SWAG program, she began to get her life back on track. She engaged with staff, mapped her future in her Individual Service Plan and was on track to achieve her goals. Then in January of 2020, tragedy struck again when she lost her sister to a drunk driver. Again, her path forward lost importance, and she quit everything that she was working towards. This Spring, Kass’ life took another major turn when she learned she was pregnant. She realized that she had to get her life together, graduated from high school, received her driver’s license and got a full-time job. With the help of the SISU Center, she managed to get her first apartment and enroll in an EMT course. Early next year, Kass will be welcoming a baby boy and is dedicated to providing a better life for her child. For more of Kass’ story, visit our website.

The Year of the Pandemic... On March 13, 2020 life as we knew it changed dramatically. Due to the uncontrolled spread of the novel Coronavirus strain, COVID-19, Massachusetts (and soon the whole country) would go into a state of lockdown. Schools closed, businesses shuttered and citizens were ordered to stay in their homes, except for emergencies. Many businesses developed work-from-home protocols, and soon schools were initiating remote learning plans. Our every day vocabulary expanded to include phrases such as “socialdistancing,” “new normal” and “zooming;” and the “essential worker” became the new American superhero. Toilet paper and cleaning supplies were in short supply, and most retailers began rationing. Gateway Cities were hit especially hard, Lawrence included. A dense population in a small urban setting greatly exacerbates the risk of transmission; and lowwage workers tend to fill jobs deemed “essential,” thereby increasing their risk of exposure. Like many non profits throughout the Commonwealth, Lawrence Prospera proved to be up to the challenges presented by this new normal. The young people we serve at the SISU Center, who are often reliant on their instincts and the streets for survival, were left without a safety net. The lack of affordable housing and parental support was only intensified by the crisis. They lacked steady income and access to the most basic of resources such as food and supplies for their children. Driven by the warnings of state and local health officials and amplified by the hysteria on social media, they were too afraid to leave their homes to seek support. With no where else to turn, they reached out to the Outreach and Case Management Teams at the SISU Center for guidance. At the Quintana Center a population forced into the shadows due to language barriers and immigration status was suddenly cut off. ESL classes, citizenship prep., naturalization services and immigrant legal assistance were all put on hold. On the federal level, the USCIS stopped conducting naturalization ceremonies for a time, and applications sat unprocessed creating backlogs. At the end of June, Lawrence was one of eight cities statewide that had a positive test rate which was significantly higher than the state average, even while testing of residents in those areas decreased. LAWRENCE PROSPERA FY’2019–2020 ANNUAL REPORT PAGE 8 “Long-standing inequities in the social determinants of health—such as, housing, economic instability, insurance status and work circumstances of patients and their family members have systematically placed social, racial and ethnic minority populations at higher risk for COVID-19 and more severe illness” Center for Disease Control (July 2020) Lawrence Prospera’s Nutritional Services Team put together weekly care packages for families struggling during the pandemic and the lockdown. The SISU Outreach Team delivered over 30 packages each week throughout Lawrence.

As restrictions eased, SISU Staff partnered with the Lawrence Police Department to deliver ice cream in hard hit neighborhoods. Lawrence Prospera has never been an organization to shy away from adversity, and the spring of 2020 proved no different. Lawrence Prospera’s nutritional services and the SISU staff compiled and delivered weekly grocery boxes for Lawrence Family Development Charter School and SISU families. Quintana and SISU staff adopted “Zoom” for programming and used this platform to help address the brain drain caused by months of being stuck at home. The SISU Outreach Team turned to online video games to conduct street-level outreach, and joined with the Lawrence Police Department’s Community Outreach Department to deliver ice cream from the LPD ice cream truck to hard hit neighborhoods on some of the summer’s hottest Friday afternoons. As the fiscal year ended, Lawrence Prospera began planning for re-opening and the new normal. The Lawrence Prospera facilities staff was trained in sanitizing and maintaining a building during a pandemic, and plexiglass barriers were installed in offices to limit face-to-face contact. The SISU Screen Print Shop has begun using their resources to print customized masks for the organization as well as for the Lawrence Family Development Charter School. Threats of increased Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) activity in heavily Staff used Zoom to replace in-person programming during the lockdown immigrant communities and policies like the “Public Charge” rule, which penalizes immigrants who have used forms of public assistance including Medicaid, contributed to untold numbers of immigrant parents disenrolling their U.S. citizen children from Medicaid and preventing them from seeking testing and/or medical assistance during the pandemic. www.healthaffairs.org (April 2020) LAWRENCE PROSPERA FY’2019–2020 ANNUAL REPORT PAGE 9

FY’20 was a productive year at the Maria del Pilar Quintana Family Center. Program Manager, Zulma Liriano took the Center one step forward in regaining its place as a hub for citizenship and naturalization supports in the City of Lawrence. Citizenship Services Lawrence Family Development, Inc. d/b/a Lawrence Prospera has a long history of providing citizenship and naturalization assistance to immigrants living in Lawrence and the surrounding areas. Citizenship preparation classes, originally held at the Lawrence Public Library, have grown into the Citizenship for New Americans’ Program at the Maria del Pilar Quintana Center. During FY’20, the Quintana Center partnered with the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition to host two naturalization clinics at the Quintana Center’s Foley Library. Volunteers and immigration attorneys were on hand to assist with completing the Naturalization forms and answer questions. Overall, thirty individuals living in the City of Lawrence received assistance at the two clinics. In addition to the formal clinics, the Quintana Center continued its partnership with Northeast Legal Aid/ Northeast Justice Center (NLA) to provide legal assistance to individuals seeking to complete the naturalization forms. During FY’20, eighteen people received legal assistance at the Quintana Center through the NLA partnership. 834,000 New U.S. Citizens were Naturalized during the last Federal Fiscal Year (FFY19). This was an Eleven-year High in New Oaths Sworn. LAWRENCE PROSPERA FY’2019–2020 ANNUAL REPORT PAGE 10 Lawrence Prospera continues to work with the Massachusetts Office of Refugees and Immigrants to provide the Financial Literacy for Newcomers program. The program targets immigrants in and around the City of Lawrence and provides them with information to help them establish trust in the U.S. financial system. During FY’20 over 100 individuals participated in workshops, provided in both English and Spanish, addressing the basics of banking, credit scores and reports, budgeting and buying a home. Immigrants often have a distrust of financial institutions based on experiences in their countries of origin.

 Juan first enrolled in the Quintana Center’s ESL Spring 2020 session. Prior to COVID, he struggled to make it to class due to work obligations and would fall behind. Because of this he had to work harder to keep up with the rest of the class and the expectations. Nonetheless, he showed a real commitment to learning. When the pandemic hit, the Quintana Center began offering classes over Zoom. Suddenly able to attend classes remotely, Juan made a commitment to not miss a single class in spite of his work obligations. He would often have to come in and out of class, but he dedicated the time every single Saturday, and took in what he could. Surprisingly, since going to only remote learning, his participation and ability to keep with the content increased dramatically. It was a great change, and while his teacher was concerned with his ability to pay attention and engage safely, she was impressed with his commitment and progress. Juan completed the Spring session and has enrolled for the fall session as a remote student. For more of Juan’s story, visit our website. Ana moved from the Dominican Republic to Lawrence, MA in 2018 with her husband and three children. She first registered with the Quintana Center’s ESL program during the spring of 2019 and earned the coveted role of graduation speaker. Ana has continued on with ESL classes throughout this current fiscal year and attributes her improved communication skills to her time at the Quintana Center and her teacher, Ms. Rose Ray Goris. Ana is continuing to work on her English language skills and is working towards a career in industrial engineering. She and her husband also hope to buy a home and make their new life in the United States more permanent. For more of Anna’s story, visit our website.

Lawrence Prospera believes that every student has the ability to learn when placed in an environment supportive of their needs. However, it takes more than hard work and above average grades to achieve a top-notch education. It also requires a serious financial commitment and an understanding of how the system works. Socio-economics too often dictates who has access to the top secondary schools in the country and can present major barriers for students from certain zip codes. Lawrence Prospera’s LFDCS Scholarship Fund has made a commitment to help remove those barriers for some of Lawrence’s most promising eighth graders through the LFDCS Opening Doors program. Working closely with the admissions offices at some of New England’s most exclusive private schools, Opening Doors provides the technical assistance with the private school admissions process to Lawrence Family Development Charter School eighth graders and their families. In FY’20, twenty-three graduates of the LFDCS Class of 2020 received $1.57 million in financial aid and scholarships for the next four years. The LFDCS Scholarship Fund contributes to the $1.57 million and helps cover the gap between what a student has received and what a family can afford so that once accepted, these exceptional students will be able to attend the school of their choice. During FY’20, the LFDCS Scholarship Fund dispersed $77,130 in scholarships to graduates of the LFDCS Class of 2020 and alumni from the Classes of 2017, 2018 and 2019. LFDCS Class of 2020 graduates are attending: Central Catholic High School Clark School Darien High School Deerfield Academy Glastonbury High School Lowell Catholic High School Miss Hall’s School Notre Dame Cristo Rey High School Phillips Academy Andover Pingree School Ridgefield High School St. John’s Prep The Academy at Penguin Hall Ashley began working with the Opening Doors program as a 6th grader at the Lawrence Family Development Charter School. In 2016 , Ashley, a graduate of the LFDCS Class of 2016, was accepted to St. Mark’s School in Southborough, MA . St. Mark’s has provided Ashley with opportunities that would not have been available to her in Lawrence. She joined the Sculpture Club and was in charge of the Los Leones Club, a on-campus Hispanic group that educates students about culture. She was the coxswain for the girl’s crew team and was able to travel around the country for competitions with the team. Ashley was also named a dorm prefect her senior year and was in charge of her residence hall and responsible for helping freshman adapt to campus and dorm life. As an admissions prefect, she worked with the admissions office providing tours and speaking with parents of new and prospective students. Her favorite subject at St. Mark’s was advanced biology which developed into an interest in studying genetics and cancer. Ashley will be attending Babson College starting in the Fall of 2020 where she hopes to study business. For more on Ashley’s story, visit our website.

After completing a third successive contract to provide targeted educational supports to the Lawrence Public Schools, FY’20 was the last year for Lawrence Prospera’s long-standing relationship with the Lawrence Family Public Academy. Never intended to be a permanent partnership, both sides agreed that Lawrence Prospera had successfully provided its expertise and met the goals laid out in the contract. The project began in September of 2014 with the Lawrence Family Development Charter School sharing staff members with Lawrence Public Schools’ early education demonstration project at the Lawrence Family Public Academy. They shared resources by providing assistance with teacher preparation, academic skills, language acquisition and social advancement of young children as well as Response to Intervention (RTI) and English as a Second Language services. During school year 2020, LFPA introduced play-based groups to the curriculum. These groups engaged students in explorative play based on lessons they were being exposed to in math and in the new literacy curriculum, CKLA (Core Knowledge Language Arts). CKLA has two distinct parts to its curriculum. The first part is skills, which engages the students in learning how to form the lines that make letters, learning about the letter sounds, blending the letter sounds to form words and finally learning letter names. The second part of CKLA focuses on language and literacy and immerses students in stories that are rich in language and vocabulary on a variety of topics including fairy tales, farms and kings and queens. A great deal of research has concluded that play-based learning is genuinely and positively impactful on student learning and development. LAWRENCE PROSPERA FY’2019–2020 ANNUAL REPORT PAGE 13
