On August 27,2022, we will have our Fourth Annual Quarter Auction at Rivertree Massillon Church (1600 Main Ave. W., Massillon, Oh 44647). This fundraiser will help support the many initiatives that AHEAD has in the Massillon City Schools and community. AHEAD Inc. is a private non-profit organization with the mission to serve children and their families by removing barriers to learning and self-sufficiency through improving their academic, emotional, and social well-being in a safe environment. AHEAD serves as a resource to families and a link between school, home and additional community resources and supports. AHEAD also helps coordinate resources from within the community into programs and services within the school buildings, such as CARE TEAM, SOS of Suicide, Mental Health Services and Substance Use/Violence Prevention programming. AHEAD also coordinates a kindergarten readiness initiative for four-year olds called SPARK (Supporting Partnerships to Assure Ready Kids). SPARK helps children get ready for kindergarten.
