Horton’s Kids is a community-based organization working to drive positive change in the lives of over 600 children and families living in the most under-resourced communities in Southeast Washington, DC – Wellington Park and Stanton Oaks. These communities are home to children and families with big dreams and the potential needed to achieve them. However, decades of disinvestment and systemic racism have created unfair barriers to access for these families. Horton’s Kids works to remove these barriers and even the playing field by providing comprehensive academic, social-emotional, health and wellness, and family engagement supports. 

 

Our impact is dramatic: children enrolled in Horton’s Kids are twice as likely to graduate from high school. Click here to learn more about our work.
