Teacher home visits are making an enormous difference in our low-performing schools. They are changing parent behavior at home which is leading to improvement in kindergarten readiness, academic achievement, attendance, classroom behavior, and connectedness between school and home.

Support the critical work of HOME WORKS! with a tax-deductible financial gift.



Together we can make a major difference in the lives of our children, our schools, our community.

Donor support pays for teacher stipends, teacher training and manuals, data collection, the external evaluation, Family Dinners and transportation for families who need it, interpreters, and academic materials to take on the visits. Whether you can give as a monthly sustaining donor or make an annual or one-time gift, every donation makes a significant impact on the lives of students.
