The Housing Opportunities Commission designed HOC Academy to help our clients grow both personally and professionally. The training and support provided to clients through HOC Academy can bolster their confidence and skill sets, allowing them to take an active role in improving their futures.
Adult clients can participate in HOC WORKS, HOC CONNECTS, the Family Self Sufficiency Program (FSS) and the Adult Education and Work Force Development Program (AEWD). HOC youth will be afforded scholarship opportunities, summer employment and internship positions, the chance to participate in STEM programs and Chess Clubs through HOC Academy. Also, HOC youth will be encouraged to join the Montgomery College Achieving Collegiate Excellence and Success (ACES) program which seeks to create a seamless pathway from high school to college completion.
