Children's Services

We are very proud of the Children Service Programs at Hope House.  With so many child-centered learning activities, the annual outcomes are stronger than ever.  The children are engaged in age appropriate learning activities that foster their quest to know more. 

The Pre-K Readiness Program for the 3-5 year old children is helping prepare the young ones for pre-k so that they will be ready to learn in a classroom setting.  We want to ensure that they are on target for promoting to Kindergarten.

The Extended School Day Tutoring Program assists school-aged children increase their academic performance levels.  Our goal is to help the homeless children we serve stay in school, promote each grade level, and ultimately graduate high school and have a desire to further their education through college attendance or vocational learning.

Homeless children often struggle with their homeless plight and have difficulty focusing on school.  Most of the time they are worried about where their next meal will come from or where are they will sleep from night to night.  Being homeless is not easy for children or anyone for that matter.  Hope House strives to bring continuity and stability to their lives with the focus on feeling secure and safe.

The Children Service Program is always seeking volunteers to help with facilitating activities that are designed to empower the children toward success.  Call 487-2061 Extension 200 to learn about the opportunities available.  You can make a difference in the lives of the homeless children we serve!
