To empower at-risk children and prepare them for successful and healthy lives through educational opportunities and comprehensive programs tailored to their needs. 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
Horton’s Kids empowers children living in one of Washington, DC’s most under-resourced communities so that they graduate from high school ready for success in college, career, and life. We are a community-based organization that serves 500 children, grades K through 12. , living in an isolated neighborhood called Wellington Park in Washington, DC’s Ward 8. The children we serve live in a community with one of the highest rates of violent crime in DC, where the average family income is less than $10,000 per year. Horton's Kids operates a safe and welcoming Community Resource Center just steps from where the children live. In our 28-year history, we’ve shown enormous outcomes: the high school graduation rate for Horton’s Kids participants is nearly twice the neighborhood average.
Activities center on traditional tutoring and mentoring activities, ensuring fundamental needs are met such as adequate health care, food and clothing, serving as advocates for the children in the school system and other settings, and offering activities and challenging opportunities to enhance the childrens' education, expand their minds and expose them to the possibilities of a wider world.
