Who We Are

Horton’s Kids empowers children growing up in one of 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, a neighborhood where 80 percent of adults don’t have a high school diploma and the average annual household income is less than $10,000.

With support from committed volunteers, Horton’s Kids’ goal is to change the life trajectory of children by providing academic, social-emotional development, and health and basic needs supports. Our impact is dramatic: in fact, children in Horton’s Kids are twice as likely to graduate from high school.
