Our Programs

homestretch summer programs

Homeless families flourish in Homestretch because we pay equal attention to the children as well as the adults. We ensure that every child can experience summer like other children. We equip every child with the support he needs to excel in school. We ensure children have books and school supplies, gifts on birthdays and holidays, shoes and clothes for all seasons, tutors to help with tough subjects, eyeglasses and dental care, and trips to parks, ballgames, and museums.
