Dear Friend

Summers at Horizons are fun-filled and busier than ever! Volunteers are back in our playspaces across the state and our young professionals network recently hosted their annual cornhole tournament, raising funds and awareness. We are excited to welcome guests to our Women's Breakfast this fall with keynote speaker Stephanie Land, author of Maid and inspiration for Netflix's Emmy and Golden Globe Award-nominated original series. Read on for a deeper look inside recent developments at Horizons:

What happens in a Horizons’ toddler classroom on a typical Tuesday morning? What's happening in a toddler's brain? WBUR 90.9 FM journalist, Gabrielle Emanuel, got to see firsthand when she visited one of Horizons’ classrooms to get an inside look at the work our team does and why they do it. Her visit aired in WBUR’s week-long series on child care. If you missed it, you can read or listen to the story online, “How child care can build kids' brains, one interaction at a time.” <Read More

summer newsletter images-2.pngParent Goals and Achievements 
Horizons’ family advocates serve as mentors, coaches, and confidants for Horizons' parents as they work towards achieving goals that help move their families out of homelessness. Goals are categorized into five pillars - family stability, well-being, finances, education and training, and employment/career. Everyday Horizons’ parents are setting goals and working towards accomplishments in these categories, finding inner fortitude, clear direction, and motivational support they need to pursue the life they envision for their families. Learn how each goal relates to the realities parent face and all they’re working toward achieving. <Read more>

summer newsletter images-3.pngLullaby Project Promotes Healing, Collaboration and Connection
Horizons partnered with Longy School of Music of Bard College to create the Lullaby Project, giving parents the opportunity to connect with their children and strengthen their relationship through writing a personalized lullaby. Parents at Horizons worked with a Longy student who encouraged them to draw on personal experience and guided them through the process of writing a song. In the end, Myriah and Jason wrote a lullaby that lets their son, Vaughn, know they will always be there for him, and he asks them to play it all the time! <Read More> 

Help kids learn and grow through play! We are excited to be reopening our Playspaces all over the state and are looking for volunteers to become PALs (Playspace Activity Leaders). Learn more and apply.
