Libris Embark On The Mathew Project To Help Homeless School Children

Circuit Clerk Tony Libri and his wife are embarking on a new initiative, aimed at helping homeless public school students in the city.


The State Journal-Register reports the Libris have purchased a building near 8th and Cook which will house The Matthew Project.


The center will seek to provide clothing and other assistance for homeless students, and will try to teach them skills such as cooking.


District 186 says more than 500 students in Springfield meet the federal definition of “homeless,” which can range from sleeping in cars to living at a campground or sharing another family’s home.
