Neighborhood Homework House Rewriting the Future with the Help of America's Christian Credit Union


On March 6 at Azusa Pacific University, Neighborhood Homework House (NHH) hosted its annual Fundraising Dinner, with the theme of "Sowing Seeds of Knowledge," and sponsored in part by America's Christian Credit Union (ACCU). The event's program featured Homework House students and alumni sharing their success stories, spotlighting the positive impact that NHH has played in their lives. A raffle and donor appeal raised additional funds for the many programs that Homework House provides.

About a month earlier, on February 5, ACCU President and CEO Mendell Thompson had personally delivered to NHH a $3,000 check representing funds for the dinner sponsorship, along with additional dollars that had been raised for Homework House during the credit union's Holiday Angels fundraising appeal.

On that occasion, NHH Executive Director Barbara Dickerson hosted Mr. Thompson, Azusa Mayor Joe Rocha, and various ACCU staff members for a tour of the NHH campus before the check presentation. The San Gabriel Valley Examiner was present to cover the story writing later, "They believe that beginning with a firm foundation in education students can extend their development into building social skills and spirituality."

"This is an incredible organization that is deeply impacting students and their families, inspiring them to not only excel in school but also to give back to their community. We couldn't be more honored to support an organization such as this," said Mr. Thompson.

Separately, ACCU announced last month that Neighborhood Homework House would be one of its partners for the new outreach program created by ACCU, Live the Mission. The program was created to exemplify the company mission, "To Reach, Serve and Teach" in the community. In light of the announcement, Barbara Dickerson said, "We look forward to working with ACCU more closely and benefitting from their incredible staff that have a heart to serve."
