Homework Haven

Empowering children for a lifetime of success through learning.

Program Overview

The Homework Haven is an after-school program that provides a quiet place for K-6 students to complete their homework with the assistance of adult tutors. We strive to help each child realize their full potential by encouraging the development of strong reading comprehension and math skills. Field trips are used to broaden each child’s worldview, and provide them with the opportunity to envision themselves pursuing careers in science, business, and community service.

We believe that strong literacy skills are the foundation for learning and that academic success is achieved through hard-work. Our efforts embrace the notion that academic achievement builds self-respect and empowers a child to become a strong contributing member of society.
