Inez Dingle Eison

In Loving Memory Of Ms. Inez Dingle Eison

In December of 2011, Ms. Inez made the decision to fully dedicate her time to the care of the children in our community through the establishment of the P.E.A.C.E. Afterschool Program with her partners and friends, Nurse Toni Williams, RN,  and Dr. Fayth Vaughn-Shavuo, Ph.D. 


P.E.A.C.E. is an acronym for Partnerships in Education to Avoid Criminal Justice System Entry and Ms. Inez firmly believed that a strong foundation in education and character would allow our children to lead productive lives. She never hesitated to speak about her love for and belief in the potential of our children. At the conference of the National Association for Multicultural Education in 2012, Ms. Inez spoke about the need to build partnerships with universities to provide support for community based organizations who work directly with our children. The partnership with Adelphi University through the Levermore Global Scholars program not only touched the lives of our children, but gave college students the opportunity to serve the community and work first-hand with the children that Ms. Inez loved, learning to see them through her eyes , breaking stereotypes, and loving them, as well.


Partnerships in Education to Avoid Criminal justice system Entry- P.E.A.C.E. Afterschool Program, Inc., operates a year round program consisting of an after school program where children are provided with free homework assistance, social/character development, academic enrichment and community service projects. Ongoing workshops engage cognitive skills that enable the students to say no to gangs. A Summer Program is also operated as a fun environment full of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) and sports experiences that promote academic, character, and physical enrichment.  The Summer Camp provides field-trips, daily club activities, swimming, Career Day, and Camp Day to help the children develop their learning skills as they prepare for the upcoming school year.
