Amarillo College joins with Martha’s Home to Ensure Career Pathways

Leaders of Amarillo College and Martha’s Home will gather at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, June 27th to cement the partnership and unveil the Home’s new “Present Needs Future Success” campaign.

Amarillo College and Martha’s Home, a shelter for homeless single women and mothers with children, are joining forces to empower the Home’s adult residents as they strive to escape poverty by pursing certificates and degrees through AC’s Adult Education and Literacy program.

A signing ceremony will take place on the second floor of the College Union Building on AC’s Washington campus and will be attended by some of the eight residents of Martha’s home who are currently students at AC or future students.

AC President Russell Lowery-Hart says partnering with Martha’s Home to ensure its residents have access to AC’s full range of resources and services was an easy decision to make for a College that has developed a nationally recognized Culture of Caring targeting removal of poverty barriers.

Amarillo College was named one of the nation’s Top 5 community colleges by the Aspen Institute College Excellence Program in 2021, and has again been named a finalist and is in the running for the 2023 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence.
