Learn more about some of the ways Homeport supports kids, and opportunities to get involved.
Homeport's award-winning Book Bank program encourages hundreds of children to discover the joy of reading. Volunteers help sort and distribute about 2,000 books, each hand-picked by a Homeport child. The program helps children retain knowledge during the off-school seasons.
Homeport provides summer camps for children between the ages of 5 and 13. Children participate in fun and educational activities, receive personal attention and support from mentors, and receive healthy meals. The program is run by volunteers.
Beginning in May, volunteers help collect, organize, and distribute backpacks stuffed with school supplies to Homeport communities across the city. Homeport holds Back to School rallies at Homeport properties in August, where over 1,000 children receive their new backpacks and enjoy art activities and games.
Every year, hundreds of kids in Homeport communities benefit from caring staff who provide homework help, mentorship, educational activities, and a listening ear at after-school programs. Staff from Homeport and partner organizations provide a healthy place for kids who often have no other place to go after school.
