H.O.M.E. is an acronym for Help Own Male Education. Our mission is firmly rooted in the acronym, purposefully chosen to connote a gathering of younger men who belong to a family of individuals (mentors) who are concerned about the educational development of our young men, many of whom will become wise fathers, good husbands, and outstanding citizens in our community. Click on the tabs to learn more about enthusiastic mentors who are dedicated to the mission of helping our young men reach their full potential. ACHIEVE THE DREAM!
Here are some of the H.O.M.E. mentors of our H.O.M.E family at Northeast Lakeview College:
The research and statistics below gives you some ideas of what we are up against. We know the urgency of this crisis, and we know even more important how critical it is to provide assistance to young men, many of whom may have come from broken homes. We believe that it is reasonable to assume that there are some young men who grew up in families without a father or without a strong father figure. If you are in college or if you are thinking about going to college, we believe that H.O.M.E. can help you establish goals and encourage you to reach them.
