Many children suffer from education deficiencies as a result of being homeless and/or living in extreme poverty. As part of our focus on academic improvement, HomeLight staff maintains an enriched learning environment well-suited for the needs of our children. Specialty volunteers and staff offer one-on-one tutoring, basic literacy and computer classes, and a book club for our school aged children. Academic tracking is a key component of our children’s success. As a result, staff members have regular discussions with parents regarding their child’s academic progress and we encourage them to become actively involved in their education. Report cards are monitored each semester as part of the plan. By doing this, we are able to identify academic strengths as well as review areas that require additional assistance so that grade level improvement is achieved.
