HWC Welcomes Denee Berliner as new Site Coordinator

Homework Central is pleased to announce that Denee Berliner has become the new Site Coordinator of our Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo after school site.

Denee is well aware of Homework Central having previously tutored students for three years at UUSM with her son. During this time, Denee became familiar with our program and of the unique footprint of our UUSM location.

By way of professional background, Denee spent many years in the hotel and hospitality industry where she directed catering and convention services and managed teams of people. For the past few years, Denee has been a business owner and management consultant. Having served in several volunteer capacities, Denee has been looking for an opportunity to bring her professional and personal experiences together to support the needs of children through her leadership, ability to motivate others and her belief in encouraging students to perform to the very best of their ability.

Genentech at Homework Central!

We are sending a special thank you to 25 employees of Genentech.  Last month, these hearty souls came to one of our after school sites and spent a morning assembling 100 school backpacks with supplies for our students.  We will give out the backpacks to our elementary school students upon their return to our program in the coming school year.  Thank you to all employees who participated and to Genentech for your continuing support of Homework Central.  We look forward to seeing you again in 2018!
