Our mission is to establish and sustain neighborhood-based learning centers in Azusa wherein at-risk children and their families are equipped to thrive academically, socially, and spiritually.
ONHH provides academic, social and spiritual tools to enable students to thrive. Because of the critical importance of family and community support within neighborhoods, NHH organizes and supports a Parent Advisory Group to facilitate community action and collaboration in neighborhoods that we serve. Workshops are offered to parents in their home language in order to equip them with the tools to ensure the pursuit of higher education in their families, provide the necessities (food, clothing, housing, medical, etc.), and expand their knowledge on the U.S. education system.
The K-8 program is designed to pair tutors in 1:2 or small-group interactions to focus on academic success. The tutors serve as mentors to these students, celebrating their successes, remembering their special occasions and engaging in activities with students outside of their neighborhood.
The Neighborhood Teen Project (NTP) has been designed to challenge our growing teen population to achieve their fullest potential in high school, set career goals, prepare for college and develop the life and leadership skills necessary to achieve their goals.

In my life, I lacked a sense of community. Volunteering at the neighborhood-based centers, I experienced being a part of something. The children and the families that I served, in turn gave and shared themselves with me. I highly recommend this organization to those that want to truly connect with another person. I now work at this organization but I was sold on their mission when I began volunteering 6 years ago.
