Immigrant Home English Learning Program

Immigrant Home English Learning Program (IHELP)

IHELP’s mission is to empower foreign-born adults by providing individualized, in-home English language education and tools for effective navigation of the community.

Our vision is a diverse and inclusive community where all immigrants are empowered through language.

Core Values

Growth: We celebrate the strength and resilience of our community members and provide opportunities to question, learn, develop skills, and build confidence as they work towards their personal goals.

Connection: We dismantle societal barriers through personal relationships. We are dedicated to building mutually beneficial partnerships with like-minded organizations and individuals.

Equity: We foster conditions for equity by increasing the agency of English language learners.

Community: Everyone benefits from uniting those who are well-established in the community with those who are longing to more fully participate.

Life-long Learnership and Cultural Humility: There are many complex issues of racial, economic and cultural justice and they affect each of us differently. We have much to learn and are committed to ongoing growth and understanding. Like our students, who engage with a desire and willingness to learn, we will remain open-minded, humble, and reflective with our education. We commit to put gained knowledge into action for increased justice and equity in our work and within our shared world community.
