Many of the children face obstacles such as hunger, cavities, poor vision, and worn-out clothes. To improve their quality of life and make learning possible, Horton’s Kids addresses these basic needs in many ways.
At every program, youth receive nutritious meals and snacks, and we help families with emergency food assistance. Our staff facilitates regular and emergency dental and vision care for all active participants. Every year, Horton’s Kids provides each child with a backpack filled with school supplies, a winter coat, a bathing suit, and additional clothing as needed.
To provide these services, Horton’s Kids collaborates with many partners, including quality local dental clinics and optometrists. Several health professionals, including dentists and orthodontists, fill cavities, clean teeth, and perform root canals pro bono.
