Heart House’s innovative afterschool program is designed for school-age children in neighborhoods known for high crime and unemployment rates. Across Dallas there is a lack of affordable, quality after school care for children. At Heart House, children have access to caring mentors, homework assistance, health & safety education, and literacy programs.
Volunteers will be working with children from 3rd-8th grade in the after school program. Activities include homework tutoring, arts & crafts and even just play with them!
Times: Heart House is open 3:30-6:00 pm every day that Dallas Independent School District schools are open.
