Holmes Academic Advancement Program



Vision Statement


The Family Helping Family Foundation believes that students within our family deserve an opportunity to education beyond high school. A lack of money should not be a deterrent for those attempting to achieve a degree or certification. By creating the Holmes Academic Advancement Program, FHF is able to encourage and support family members by providing information, advising and financial scholarships towards their desired program.

Mission Statement


The HAAP endeavors to produce a lasting legacy of professionals and intellectuals within our family in all academic and vocational disciplines.
