What do we do at Horizons for Homeless Children?

Horizons helps children learn how to play, to share, to read, and to enjoy exploring their worlds. They help parents learn how to be nurturing and involved in the growth and development of their children, and help them learn and grow through job training, GED and college courses.

The staff help to stabilize families so that they can weather any crisis, and thus help to break the cycle of homelessness that too often occurs.

Since 1994, several thousand children have been served by the Community Children's Centers. They have recruited and trained more than 14,000 volunteer Playspace Activity Leaders since 1990, giving thousands of children living in family shelters across Massachusetts the opportunity to play, learn and to just be kids.

Horizons offers training sessions for service providers in Massachusetts and participate in local and national conferences. We work with public officials in state and federal government to increase the resources available to young homeless children and to change the conditions that lead to family homelessness.
