The Neighborhoods We Serve

We work in HUD Section 8 housing complexes in Washington DC’s Ward 8. These communities known as Wellington Park and Stanton Oaks, are home to more than 600 children and their 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 for children. Our programs do not have any selection criteria for students; all children are invited to participate.

Our personalized and research-based model of academic, social-emotional, and basic needs supports, which are based out of our on-site Community Resource Centers, help children to graduate from high school ready to succeed in college, career, and life.
