Many youth that live in low-income areas in Holyoke don't have access to high-quality tutoring programs. Homework House helps solve this issue by offering free-of-cost, research-based after-school and summer tutoring and literacy programs to Holyoke students grade K - 6. Our outcomes demonstrate how Homework House helps to close the achievement gap for Holyoke youth - one tutoring session at a time!
