Homework Central launched a new website today. We designed this site to help promote the critical role that Homework Central plays in supporting vulnerable elementary school children in San Mateo. We hope we have made it easy for you to join us as a volunteer, whether you want to tutor at one of our homework sites or volunteer in another capacity. We also hope you find it easy to support Homework Central with your monetary donations.

Homework Central is proud to announce that it has acquired a total of $35,000 in donation matching grants for the 2013 Fall Fund Raising Campaign! An extremely generous group of donors has committed to matching, dollar for dollar, all first-time donors, any donors who have increased their donations from last year, and any donors who have not given in the last two years.
Thank you to all of our champion donors who have pledged for the donation-matching grant. Your commitment and passion to help the most vulnerable students of San Mateo is an inspiration to all of us.

Our annual Mad Science/Parent Night was held on November 20, 2013, at the Congregational Church of San Mateo. It was both an educational and fun time, with a total of 90 people in attendance. The Mad Scientist made an appearance and taught HWC students all about the amazing power of air by conducting experiments showing the power of air pressure and even creating an impromptu hover craft with a wooden board and air blower!
Thank you for all the students, parents, and staff members how made this such a memorable event!
