Chris Goodman comments in “Nonprofit Works to Break Skid Row Cycle” — CBS Los Angeles

February 28, 2017 | By Kylie Larkin — Professor Christine Chambers Goodman is featured in a CBS Los Angeles article and news broadcast titled “Nonprofit Works to Break Skid Row Cycle for Homeless Youth.”  The story reports on the efforts of the Skid Row Learning Center for School on Wheels to ensure that homeless children do not fall behind on their education.  Professor Goodman serves on the School on Wheels Board and volunteers as an academic tutor.

Via CBS Los Angeles:

The center helps as many as 45 students daily by providing a full meal and one-on-one time with a tutor. Most importantly, it provides a safe, quiet place for students to get their schoolwork done and stay caught up.

“Falling behind early has lifelong ramifications,” tutor Chris Chambers Goodman said. “So to the extent that we can at least help students try to keep up, we’re really doing a great service to the community.”

Once the kids finish their work, they get ready to make the walk back to the Union Rescue Mission, where many of them live.
