The 309 South Main St., in the Wilcox Apartment Complex, provides programs for inner-city children and their families in Middletown that reinforce family values and enhance the children's potential.
Programs are designed to improve academic performance for about 30 students ages 6-12 and heighten social awareness and responsibility.
