Our Mission & Vision
More than thirty years ago a teenager walked into the Covenant House homeless shelter with $2.00 and a desire to become more than the concrete outdoor living accommodations he was experiencing. Education became his stepping stone to a better life for him and his family. His journey led him from the Covenant House to college, from college to a police officer, from a police officer back to college and then on to medical school. Eventually education afforded him the opportunity to reach many people through education.
Leveling The Playing Field
This model of educational perseverance became contagious and today MDI Prep Foundation has provided education resources that has allowed training for more than 1,000 students and underserved communities across the country. We leverage partnerships with higher education institutions, community organizations, and school districts to create sustainable solutions in order to answer critical needs.
