Birthday Gift Room


We help families celebrate children’s birthdays when times are tight. PRISM participants may choose age-appropriate gifts, decorations, plates, napkins, and a birthday cake! Families may access this program once per year for each child age 13 and under.


Back-to-School Success Program


School expenses place a particular strain on the thousands of families in our service area who are struggling to make ends meet. We provide new back packs and other required supplies so children whose families participate in PRISM's services have the necessary tools to start the school year off on even ground with their peers.


Holiday Toy Shoppe


We put a little magic into the holiday season for PRISM families by providing parents and guardians with the opportunity to “shop” for new gifts for each of their children, and we include the wrapping paper and bows so parents have an exciting, dignified gift-giving experience.
