Today, Bob is realizing his college dreams as a student at The Home's Academic Support for College and Life program. His inspiring story is a reminder of just how much children can achieve when they are given the resources and opportunities to succeed.

The Home's newest program, the Young Adult Resource Network (YARN), has become a place to turn to for many Boston youth who are still involved with the Department of Children and Families and are essentially facing the transition to adulthood on their own. YARN acts as a support system for these young people, assisting them in areas ranging from housing to employment and their overall well-being.


Jerbeth Sikorski, teacher at KCC, keeps a student engaged by using the SMART board.

SMART Boards Make Magic Happen in the Classroom

The Home recently introduced a new technology into the classrooms at all three of its special education schools. The interactive SMART Board projects information from a computer onto the whiteboard, allowing the teacher and students to use their fingers or a pen to write, draw and interact with content on the surface of the board. This amazing technology is especially powerful for special needs students, enabling them to learn in new and exciting ways that keep them engaged.
