A Caring Support Community for Grades 3 through 5

For over 15 years Homework Central (“HWC”) has offered academic and family support for students in grades 3 through 5 in the northern San Mateo area. At our four student support sites, we offer homework tutoring and skills development in math, reading and writing; parent education; and a welcoming support community for some of San Mateo’s most vulnerable youth. When you serve as a volunteer or become a financial donor of HWC, you can help make a difference in a child’s life and help prepare them for lifelong academic success.
