Education InequityThe Teacher Resource Center
The Teacher Resource Center (TRC), located in the Urban Alliance Distribution Center, is an effective means to help teachers at Title I schools get school supplies and other valuable resources for their classrooms at no cost to the school or the teachers.
Typically, efforts like this have annual fees to cover the cost of facilities, staff time for scheduling, and other administrative costs. Urban Alliance has absorbed these costs by providing the warehouse space, using UA Staff and volunteers for scheduling and staffing, and allowing teachers with limited available resources to worry about the needs of their class without worrying about the cost.
Our partnership with Word Vision is a special one. By dedicating most of our building space to serve a distribution center, Urban Alliance made a clear and unique path for World Vision to operate in New England.
