Expanding Our Reach, Deepening our Roots

Horton’s Kids believes circumstance should not dictate a child’s future, and that every child should graduate from high school ready to succeed in college, career, and life. To that end, we provide a holistic, research-based continuum of academic, youth development, and basic needs supports designed to empower children and their families to succeed. Our multigenerational approach provides comprehensive programs and services for children as well as their parents and caregivers—targeting economic stability including housing, job readiness, and health and well-being to promote each individual child’s success.


The time is NOW for Horton’s Kids to
launch our next phase of growth.

In 2021, we purchased a large church in the heart of Southeast DC. Rooted within the local community, this church will become the new Horton’s Kids Community Resource Hub (Horton’s Hub), allowing us to expand our presence in the neighborhood and strategically position us for future growth and partnerships. The new Horton’s Hub helps us meet the increased needs in our community, boost our programs and services, and serve hundreds more students and families residing in the 16 additional affordable housing communities within a half-mile radius.
