A giving community is a healthy community

Hoops and Homework is a safe and nurturing neighborhood-based after-school program which expands opportunities for youth in Framingham.

  • We believe that there is a need for after-school services in the neighborhoods where children live.
  • We create a positive social and learning environment where all children can succeed.
  • We develop strong social and emotional skills.
  • We put a high value on each child's educational growth and good study habits.
  • We believe that physical activity and recreation builds strong hearts and minds.
  • We encourage children to explore, experiment, be creative, and adopt a problem-solving mentality.
  • We recognize that children's hunger must be addressed before they can learn.
  • We instill a positive can-do attitude in our children and staff to build self-esteem and self-worth.
  • We encourage everyone in the community to participate in our mission (children, families, staff, volunteers, neighbors, schools, and community leaders), because everyone can add value.
