About Our Program

Our Mission


Hoops and Homework is a safe and nurturing neighborhood-based after-school and summer program which expands opportunities for youth in Framingham.

Hoops and Homework offers academic and enrichment services to youth ages 5 - 14 residing around the Beaver and Waverly Street areas.


We strive to ensure a safe and fun learning environment for all of our youth.

The program operates at two locations: Framingham Housing Authority's site at Carlson and Pusan Rd., and Cochituate Homes' site at Interfaith Terrace.


Both sites are located in the lowest income neighborhood of Framingham.

We strive to serve the children of Framingham.

We are licensed through the Massachusetts Office of Early Education and Care.


We are the only neighborhood-based and licensed after-school program in Framingham.
"Our goal is to help students improve their academic skills, especially reading, writing and math. We hope to inspire these students to believe in themselves and perhaps go on to higher education."
