Spotlight on: Harvard Park SCOPE

Located: 2501 S. 11th St. (just west of Bunn Park)

Staff: Ms. LaTasha (Lead), Mr. Titus and Ms. Lyric

Size: 20

Typical day at Harvard Park: According to Ms. LaTasha, each day at Harvard Park is an exciting day with a great group of students and staff. Students enjoy building with Legos, playing board games, and making crafts.

Favorite activities: Now that spring is in the air SCOPERs are enjoying the great weather during outside playtime.

Quote from Ms. LaTasha: “What makes our SCOPE program unique is the awesome group of kids who like working together and helping one another. These students are not only awesome at the SCOPE program but they have demonstrated these same skills during their school day.”

Financial aid

Project SCOPE works with Community Connection Point for families that need assistance with their weekly fee. For more information on Community Connection Point (CCP), please call 525-2805 or click on the blue link which will take you to their web site. The web site will allow you to print an application if you are applying for financial assistance for the first time.  If you currently have CCCC and are changing providers, you will need to call CCCC to request a Change of Provider form.  Once you complete your information, please deliver your CCCC form to the white dropbox located at the SCOPE office, 2120 E. Reservoir.   This dropbox is located outside of our entrance and is locked, so you may drop your paperwork off after hours.  Our staff will complete our portion of the form and forward it to CCP.  


Year End Statements:  Please be reminded that Project SCOPE does not provide a year end statement for tax purposes.  If needed, we can duplicate the receipts that you have received for a charge of .50 cents per receipt and we ask that you allow two weeks for them to be located and copied.
