Since 2012, HM has grown from working with 25 volunteers to over 300 who joyfully meet the needs of their neighbors by listening before acting. Today, its education programs match students with mentors and volunteer reading buddies, boosting the skills and confidence of 68 students each year. Emerging Leaders, a comprehensive multi-year program, connects an additional 35 students with civic leaders and gives them the tools to launch their own social enterprises and enroll in internships that expand their professional horizons. Through its Love Your City and Healthy Start programs, HM tailors the way it addresses the needs of each student and family it serves and increases the overall experience of food security in low-resource neighborhoods. The core ingredient across HM's education, leadership development, and food distribution programs is a love for community. And that's what makes long-lasting change.
