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 has been transformed into 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. 

Dramatic Impact

For the sixth year in a row, 100% of seniors enrolled in Horton’s Kids’ programs graduated from high school.

Securing Futures for Southeast
Capital Campaign  

To purchase, renovate, staff, and ensure the sustainability of the new Horton’s Hub, we aim to raise $5M through our Securing Futures for Southeast Capital Campaign. Thanks to our early campaign contributors, Horton’s Kids has raised over half of our campaign goal. As we enter the public phase of our campaign, we call on our community to make the dream of our Horton’s Kids Community Resource Hub a reality. With your help, we can make sure that every child in Southeast DC has the resources they need to graduate high school, pursue their dreams, and build the life they deserve. 

Help us get Horton’s Hub up and running by making a personally significant gift today. All campaign gifts above $10,000 will be included on a special donor plaque. Horton’s Hub naming opportunities are available for gifts above $15,000. All gifts and pledges must be received by December 31, 2024.
