Program Overview

Founded in 1997 by two educators who share a passion to mitigate the educational barriers facing impoverished children, Homework House began as a grassroots response to the critical needs of at-risk youth living in the distressed Ninth Street neighborhood known for drug trafficking
and gang violence. Since the beginning, Homework House has offered individualized educational support to equip students
to achieve their academic potential, and to mentor students throughout the process of preparing for and pursuing higher education, fulfilling careers and become contributing members of the community.

Each of the Homework House programs contributes
to the mission of providing at-risk youth with the tools to thrive academically and socially. Because research
demonstrates that parents powerfully impact school success when they are engaged in their children's education process, Homework House incorporates parent education into programming.

Student and Volunteer Success Stories

As a community-wide, volunteer-driven effort to improve the lives and prospects of low-income youth, our small professional staff of five is supplemented with the services of 16 college interns and over 440 volunteers, including 115 trained as tutors and mentors. Because of our outstanding Volunteer Management Program, we were awarded the 2014 Service Enterprise's Points of Light designation, which recognizes Homework House as an organization that uses volunteers on the highest level. Service Enterprise Corps conducted the in-depth Blue Ribbon diagnostic study, in partnership with LA Works, producing a Service Enterprise Diagnostic Report, which estimated the service value of our volunteers at $293,6ll.52!
