HomeWorks has seen impressive growth in support and its impact on its students, academically and personally, over the past seven years, and its Executive Director Natalie Tung sees no limits to its future possibilities.


Tung, who founded the organization when she was an undergraduate at Princeton University and student teaching at Trenton Central High School, had come from her home in Hong Kong to attend The Lawrenceville School for four years before coming to Princeton. She saw the potential of the boarding school model for the girls she was teaching in Trenton.


“I had such an amazing experience at Lawrenceville, not only with the learning and the education, which is so incredible, but also living in a dorm with 40 other girls,” she said. “It was the first time I had an experience where girls were really lifting each other up.
