What We Do
Horton’s Kids empowers children growing up in DC’s most under-resourced communities so that they graduate from high school ready for success in college, career, and life. We serve 500 children in grades K-12 living in Wellington Park & Stanton Oaks – neighborhoods that have been profoundly impacted by decades of disinvestment and barriers to opportunity. Your impact is dramatic: children in Horton’s Kids are twice as likely to graduate from high school.
Make A Difference
Horton’s Kids empowers more than 500 youth in grades K-12 to improve their academic outcomes, develop important character traits, and access healthy meals. The graduation rate for Horton’s Kids participants is twice the neighborhood average.
With the goal of seeing every child graduate from high school ready for college, career, and life, Horton’s Kids is having significant impacts on the children we serve. Here are just a few of their stories.
On October 29th, Horton’s Kids began an exciting new chapter with the opening of our Stanton Oaks Community Resource Center in Southeast DC. The second Center, located about an 8-minute walk from our current Center, will serve children and families living in a housing community very similar to Wellington Park.
