The Big Lift Strategic Planning Update is Coming Soon!

La Honda-Pescadero

On the San Mateo County coast, the La Honda-Pescadero community serves families of La Honda, Loma Mar, Pescadero, and San Gregorio. The La Honda-Pescadero community is proud to be engaged with The Big Lift to provide high-quality preschool, summer, attendance, and family engagement programming to support closing the achievement gap.

We are sorry the La Honda-Pescadero Inspiring Summers registration is closed as the program and waitlist are FULL.
