Each year, for 60 hours a week, the House engages 450 students in grades 4-12 in Prince William County, and an additional 3,200 students across the DC metro region Ė before school, after school, on weekends, and in the summer. For students in crisis, counseling, recreational therapy, and family support programs help them overcome obstacles and become advocates for their own mental health. During the critical out-of-school hours (the peak time for dangerous behavior), the House equips kids with the skills and knowledge they need to excel in higher education, in their chosen careers, and in life. The approach is comprehensive: academic enrichment, leadership development, mentorship, service-learning, workforce readiness, college access, and health programs come together under one roof to help each child reach his or her full potential. The House is a second home for these kids. Letís make sure the door is always open.
