Mission Statement


Horizons for Homeless Children seeks to provide opportunities of early education and play to young homeless children throughout the state of Massachusetts. There various programs include early education centers (located in Boston), Family Partnerships Program, Policy and Advocacy, and statewide Playspace Programs.

Description


Thanks to our specially trained staff, whose efforts are supported and amplified by hundreds of committed volunteers and donors, Horizons provides hope and opportunity to the families we serve. Our four pillars of work include: Early Education Centers: We operate one of the state's top-ranked early education programs, which starts children along the path toward success at school. (located in Boston) Family Partnerships Program: We give their parents a much-needed respite from the difficulties of homelessness, a shoulder to lean on, and practical guidance toward getting their lives back on track. Policy & Advocacy: We highlight the unique needs of homeless children and families to ensure they are consistent priorities among policymakers on local, state, and federal levels. Playspace Program: We give children in shelters play experiences that let them be kids for a few hours each week. Playspace locations for Western, MA take place in Springfield, Holyoke, and Northampton.
