Micah House is an educational after-school program for children and youth from 1st through 12th grades. Established in 2001, Micah House seeks to meet the tremendous challenges faced by kids today in the under-resourced neighborhoods of North Redlands California.
Micah House exists...
...to bridge the gap from school to home providing homework help, tutoring, literacy education and character-building themes which would not otherwise be available to under-resources students in Redlands.
Micah House is an educational enhancement program that emphasizes spiritual development as well as academic improvement.
In addition to homework Micah House offers extracurricular activities including art, music, bike restoration, and gardening. The computer lab and volunteer tutors make study times both fun and meaningful.
The daily program integrates each component as a tool to model character-building concepts of sportsmanship, teamwork, anger management and self-confidence, skills that are essential for a productive, healthy and successful life.
We achieve this vision through…
- partnering with families to influence the neighborhoods where students live.
- complimenting the public school’s efforts.
- helping students with their daily assignments.
Our approach recognizes that it is necessary for people to have their basic needs met to be able to thrive academically and develop a strong emotional and spiritual foundation. We believe that a whole-family approach produces the best results for children, youth, and families and the communities in which they live.
