SAN DIEGO — Middle and high-school students in San Diego mid-city neighborhoods will now have free access to computers, printers, internet, homework assistance, school supplies and a daily after-school snack with the unveiling of the Neighborhood House Association’s (NHA) new Homework Center.
The Homework Center is NHA’s newest community service and offers students a safe after-school study environment and provides free transportation from select area schools.
“The goal of the center is to help students progress academically,” said NHA President and CEO Rudolph A. Johnson, III. “NHA’s mission is to build healthy families and empower communities. It’s crucial that our youth are receiving a solid education and have the resources to succeed in school.”
This newest program from NHA is intended to give academically at-risk students resources for success that they otherwise would not be able to access.
NHA reached out to local San Diego Unified School District middle and high schools to provide information on the new center and further understand student needs. In addition, local universities, community organizations and businesses have partnered with NHA to provide tutoring support services and outreach to the community.
“This is a community effort to support our students,” said Johnson. “The Homework Center provides an additional resource for our underserved communities.”
