Together we can rekindle a love of learning on #GivingTuesday. #GiveHomeworkHouse today because every kid deserves a chance!

This #Giving Tuesday we're asking you to help us raise $7,000 to support our tutoring & mentoring programs for low income children in Holyoke.

Why #GiveHomeworkHouse on #GivingTuesday?

#GiveHomeworkHouse today because Homework House programs are always FREE for every child.

At Homework House, we believe that every child deserves access to high quality after school and summer programs regardless of a family's ability to pay. For nine years, Homework House has been a safe place where kids living in Holyoke’s most economically challenged neighborhoods can learn and be successful.

Our Program

90 children come to Homework House every day after school for homework help and tutoring. We keep our tutor:student ratio low and the children work with the same tutors throughout the year. Our volunteer tutors help the children with their homework and work with them daily on improving the their reading and math skills. And since keeping kids on track in reading is a year-round job, we have Summer Readers & Leaders, our 5 week long literacy-based summer program for our 1st-4th graders.

#GiveHomeworkHouse today because every child can benefit from positive, nurturing mentoring relationships with caring adults.

Homework House is a haven for kids like Jorge, a 6th grader whose home life is very challenging. He's been coming to Homework House for 3 years and the connection and support that he finds here helps him stay focused on his schoolwork.

#GiveHomeworkHouse today because our programs make a difference!

Homework House has transformed the lives of hundreds of Holyoke children - kids like Angel, who was one of the very 1st children to come to Homework House. Angel is now a senior at a prestigious New England prep school and will be attending college in the fall. He is the 1st person in his family to graduate from high school.

Our Impact

The kids who come to Homework House are working hard and improving! In our 2014-2015 year:

  • 68% of K-3 graders met or exceeded reading growth expectations
  • 90% of K-3 graders mastered at least one list of grade appropriate high frequency sight words
  • 40% of K-3 and 33% of 4th graders ended the year reading at or above grade level.

Our impact isn't limited to the children’s academic outcomes. Homework House kids report that because they come to Homework House:

  • they’re better readers;
  • they get better grades; and
  • they’re more engaged at school!

Please give generously! Homework House relies solely on contributions from individuals, businesses and foundations who care about the future of our children to bring our services to the community.
