Dear Friend

Spring is a time of change, and the happenings at Horizons are no exception! Our classrooms are bustling with innovative new programs focused on STEM learning while parents are taking part in English classes and job training programs. Our workforce continues to grow its skills, most recently by launching a professional development series designed to deepen the team’s competencies in trauma-informed practices. New parent workshops are available to families living in shelter, Playspaces are reopening in many locations and there is much to rejoice as we plan our in-person Annual Spring Gala! Read on for a look inside some of these recent developments at Horizons.

Thanks to partnerships with the Museum of Science and the Dev Tech Research Group at Tufts University, exploration abounds! <Read more>
