About Us

Founded in 2016, HomeWorks Trenton is a 501(c)(3) non-profit operating a free, after-school residential program for marginalized high school girls that provides academic and social-emotional enrichment activities to supplement public schools and build community leaders.

Mission

HomeWorks inspires and equips young women from marginalized communities to achieve their potential and positively transform the world around them by providing a supportive and educational residential environment.

Community Statement

HomeWorks aims to work alongside our scholars to disrupt the narrative that Black and Latinx girls’ lives are defined by the cyclical effects of systemic injustice. We accomplish this by providing a space to explore and reclaim power over their experiences, cultures and identities.

Values

Intentionality. Empathy. Community.

Vision

Communities of young women around the world breaking down educational and gender barriers to social justice.
