Horizons for Homeless Children

Horizons for Homeless Children was founded in 1988 as an independent organization dedicated exclusively to serving young homeless children and their families. Horizons for Homeless Children touches the lives of more than 2,000 young homeless children each week in Massachusetts through Playspaces (trauma-informed educational and recreational spaces) in shelters and 175 children each day and over 300 a year through its three early education centers, Boston's only comprehensive, trauma-informed full-time early education and care centers specifically for homeless children. In addition to direct service, we advocate on behalf of young homeless children and their families with policy makers and provide training and technical assistance to related educators and service providers.
