tutoringChildren in foster care are often behind in school. For many foster families there is little time that can be devoted to helping a foster child “catch up.” Crossroads NOLA is recruiting and training tutors to assist children in foster care. As foster families request tutors, Crossroads NOLA will match the foster child with a tutor in our database.
