H.O.M.E. Childcare Scholarship

The H.O.M.E. (Helping Ourselves Means Education) Program is an important part of our on-campus support system for non-traditional student parents. This program connects student parents with the campus and community resources needed to continue their education. H.O.M.E. is the only student organization on campus that maintains a focus on providing activities, encouragement, and resources specifically for student parents.

At H.O.M.E., we are committed to helping EWU student parents complete their degrees by providing information, networking opportunities, childcare scholarships, and advocacy. H.O.M.E. provides a variety of resources designed to assist students in achieving their goals.
