Isabelle Pike truly believes in the work she’s doing with Branches, Inc., which just last year served over 11,000 individuals. “Branches is a unique non-profit organization focused on providing holistic and long-term services for children, youth and families,” says Pike. “We help people grow deeper and climb higher in life by building a foundation through education and providing life-changing opportunities so they can achieve their goals and fulfill their potential.” Branches serves, educates and inspires people through student, family and financial stability services via their main program areas targeting elementary, middle and high school students as well as adults and families. In addition to academic and enrichment programming for students and financial literacy training, program participants are also offered small business development services, free tax preparation, affordable car loans, hunger relief and personal financial coaching. “We believe that our children and youth can achieve success in the long-term if we’re able to provide strategic support for the entire family unit.”; BrancheSFl.org.
