Horizons for Homeless Children seeks volunteers!
24 Feb 2015
One in every 30 children in the U.S. is homeless each year. The stress and trauma of homelessness is emotionally and cognitively damaging to young children and costly to their communities.
Horizons for Homeless Children is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of young homeless children in Massachusetts by ensuring that they are prepared for school success.
We provide high-quality early education, opportunities for play, and comprehensive family support services. We serve 3,000 homeless children each week through our early education centers, our shelter-based Playspaces, and our Family Partnership Program.

You can help make a difference in the lives of homeless families by becoming a Playspace Activity Leader! Our Playspace Activity Leaders, or PALs, spend 2 hours a week playing with young children experiencing homelessness. To learn more about our Playspace Program, or to apply for a volunteer position, please visit our website at:, or call (617) 553-5488.

The next training takes place on:
Saturday, May 30
Roxbury, MA
9:30 am- 3:30 pm
