ProJeCt CEO Janice Komisor has earned one of Judith's Reading Room Freedom Through Literacy Awards. Judith's Reading Room honors individual champions of literacy from all disciplines all over the world -- teachers, librarians, researchers, educators, authors -- anyone who has done exemplary work to foster and sustain a love of reading. Janice received the award at a celebration on May 6, 2015 at Cedar Crest College. "Janice is committed to ProJeCt's mission to help people help themselves," said ProJeCt Board President Alan Abraham. "This award is testament to her passion, due-diligence and consistent advocacy for ProJeCt and the people the agency serves."

We are pleased to announce that ProJeCt has received a $10,000 Community Partnership Grant from the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation for our Student Success Program (SSP). SSP is a collaborative, school-based system of services provided to students identified by the Easton Area School District as exhibiting key risk factors in the areas of behavior, attendance and academics. The goals of the program are to promote positive school-wide behavior, improve academic success and increase the likelihood of graduation for at-risk students. Many thanks to the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation.
