Add a HOME Unit Study!

You can help your children learn the value of giving back by purchasing HOME's unit study The Character of Giving. In this study, you will learn more about people throughout history whose giving has changed the world for the better. You will also create your own plan for giving that will have an impact on the community in which you live. 


Can't commit to a service project right now?

Life is busy! We completely understand. You may find it easier to simply make a financial donation. Thank you so much for your support!
