Childcare AND Education
We offer trauma-informed childcare and educational programs to the children living in our Hope Residence while their mothers are working toward recovery. These programs allow mothers to focus on their own journey while still being able to keep their family intact.
For homeless children and children from addictive families, who are arguably the most vulnerable segment of those from disadvantaged backgrounds, the chance to live, study, and play in a safe, caring, trauma-informed environment that fosters educational success greatly increases their chances of breaking the cycle of poverty.
The childcare program at Hope Residence provides multi-sensory activities, including manipulatives, arts and crafts, pretend play, outdoor play, snacks and rest time.
For school-aged children, educational support is provided through an after-school program consisting of daily homework monitoring, remedial tutoring, computer applications, educational and cultural enrichment through field trips and social value and recreational activities.
