Homework Hideout

Need a quiet place to study? No space in your room to set up books? We’ve created a quiet space with Internet and limited free color printing, common school supplies and a community mentor to encourage students to create school work that they can be proud of! Open Monday-Thursday for students in grades 4-12.
