Mission Statement

Horizons for Homeless Children (formerly The Horizons Initiative) is a non-profit organization that focuses on the needs of children and families living in homeless shelters. Horizons for Homeless Children is a non-profit organization that since 1990 has worked to improve the lives of homeless children and their families. At The Playspace Programs, we install and equip playspaces in family shelters and we train volunteers to work and play with children. The Playspace Programs have been successfully run in the Greater Boston area since 1990 and we are planning an expansion of the program to other regions of Massachusetts. Presently there are over 500 volunteers who are placed at more than 50 shelter sites in the Greater Boston area and the program is expanding to the Worcester/Central Region.

Description

The Playspace Program of Horizons for Homeless Children is seeking volunteers to play with children living in family homeless and domestic violence shelters in Worcester and the Central Massachusetts Region. A commitment of 2 hours per week for 6 months is required.
