At any time an ATLAST student is able to contact ATLAST when any issue regarding food, clothing, immigration service, housing medical, etc. arise: not only with themselves but anyone in their household… For we know what impacts a family member impacts the student.
Resources are important to everyone in all walks of life. Sometimes a couple hundred dollars could make or break a person/family. Fortunately in McKinney we have some of the best nonprofits that offer services for little to no cost. You can either contact them directly or you can contact us and we will help you with the process.

Scholarship and Higher Education
The road to attaining scholarships and higher education can be intimidating especially for those who are new to this country or are barely learning the English language
ATLAST has staff to help students navigate this process in regards to finding grants/scholarships, filling out the paper work, what career to pursue and school to choose. ATLAST also understands college is not for everyone or that you may want to pursue college at a later date. If this is the case we can still help you get certifications and licenses in a career you like and still live a healthy and wealthy lifestyle for you and your family.

Frequently asked questions
Do you provide resources for refugees and immigrants?
We understand that sometimes our families refuse to seek needed services out of fear that these agencies would probably report their residency status or the residency status of a parent or grandparent or their caretaker. Therefore, they choose not to seek these services which are detrimental not only to their advancement in life but to their very survival.
Thus when a student reaches out to ATLAST they trust we will send them in the right direction and with the right people that will not only take care of their needs but also their family needs regardless of their residency.
Who provides these services?
ATLAST does not provide any of these services. McKinney, Texas already has some of the best organizations that address these issues. We do partner with these organizations and know them very well and know that these individuals only care about the well-being of an individual.
