Opportunity House is located next door to our church in Avondale and originally was a provider of English as a second language instruction, tutoring, summer programs, meals, and mentorship to people of all ages. Over the years, the focus of Opportunity House has become an after school program for children from Kindergarten through the 5th grade.
If your children need a safe place to go on early release Wednesday then we can help! We provide help with homework, tutoring, and have other activities such as a computer lab, reading room, videos, crafts and board games. We also provide a light snack for the children who attend. The program is free and is designed for children from Kindergarten through the 5th grade. Besides a Wednesday program during the school year, we offer a summer program to keep kids safe and involved.
For more information about Opportunity House programs or to volunteer your time, please call the Church Office at (623) 932-3480.
