About the Company
HomeWorks Trenton, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that runs a free, community-based, after school residential program for Black and Brown high school girls in Trenton, New Jersey. We provide a space where Black and Brown girls can authentically express themselves while receiving academic and social-emotional tools to thrive despite living in a systemically unjust society.
Our scholars live in the HomeWorks house from Sunday evenings to Friday mornings and are transported to and from their Trenton Public Schools every day to ensure timeliness. After school, scholars engage in daily activities focused on academics and identity-driven leadership, eat a family-style meal, and stay overnight in our dorm with two full-time staff members. Our HomeWorks model decreases chronic absenteeism; improves scholars’ academic performance and social-emotional skills; and celebrates the power of Black and Brown sisterhood. By providing a space to explore and define their experiences, cultures, and identities, HomeWorks offers our scholars a chance to see that their ideas, visions, and presence deserve a place in this world.
HomeWorks was started in 2016. Since then, HomeWorks has built a diverse team of full-time and part-time staff, board members, and volunteers. Together, we have run five programs and built a HomeWorks community. The HomeWorks team has been honored to be recognized by Princeton University, McKinsey & Company, Echoing Green, Comcast, Hollister, TRESemmé, Camelback Ventures, Barclays, Vital Voices, The Rachael Ray Show and more.
