Partner Spotlight: Porter-Leath

Porter-Leath’s mission is to empower children and families to achieve healthy, optimal, and independent lifestyles. In Memphis, 67,000 children live in households with incomes below the federal poverty line, which is $25,750 for a family of four with two adults and two children.    

High-quality early-childhood education facilitates an important pathway out of poverty. The successful outcomes associated with investing in children at an early age have been widely researched. Proper funding positions excellent programs like Porter-Leath to expand its services, helping solve for this most urgent challenge.            

Slingshot is honored to provide Porter-Leath with an annual, objective third-party perspective on its poverty-fighting impact.
