Health & Wellness

In 2021:

In winter clothing items distributed
Diapers distributed
Families received mental health referrals

We provide children with the essential items needed to be focused, engaged and school-ready, including meals, backpacks, school supplies, books, and winter coats, and connect them to wellness resources for health screenings and mental health support. Families can also access items from our food and supply pantry including toothpaste, shampoo, and other toiletry items not covered by SNAP benefits. Horton’s Kids delivers many of these supports through our Community Resource Centers.
