Home Based Arts USA began in 1994 with the mission of creating education programs and products to enrich the lives of children, especially minority and at-risk youth. The focus of the organization has always been to increase children's investment in their community by making them aware of the rich and valuable history of Dayton and the Miami Valley and now topics of interest throughout the nation. Through the Children’s Historical Publishing division our current programs are the development of Learning Activity Books and music that are of historical and cultural in nature to serve as both a learning tool and to help bridge the gap in social issues. . The work of HBA can be seen in such places as your local bookstore to museums nationwide. The President of the United States and dignitaries from around the world have witnessed our achievements.
