How To Help

OPMAD, Inc. is a non-profit, parent-run organization that provides after-school programs in three Hartford public schools.

As civic participation declines in urban areas, OPMAD provides a means to use local human and organizational resources, link people to each other, create higher expectations for academic and community achievement and strengthen families. The outcome is increased academic success for children and informed civic engagement.

OPMAD needs help from you to continuously provide these valuable services to our children and parents. Your gift will help us help the many families that need our services. Your gift will support the staff and technology as well as improve our resources and tools.
