Serving Children from Norwalk and Stamford

Direct Impact...
100% of any donation goes to the children/programming! 

We need your support

Connecticut has the widest gap in the nation between the academic performance of students from under-served families and their more affluent peers. The ultimate and most distressing consequence of this achievement gap is that only 60% of the nation’s under-resourced youth will graduate from high school. And only one in three will go to college.

Our Horizons students are beating the averages. These young men and women are breaking the cycle of poverty. They are becoming productive members of their communities. They make us proud every day.

Horizons relies on the generous support of funders who believe in leveling the playing field for low-income students. Gifts to Horizons directly support our year round K-12 programs. (All operating costs of our program are covered by our Board of Directors and Governors.)
