WE EMPOWER CHILDREN AND YOUTH THROUGH STRENGTHENING FAMILIES AND BUILDING RESLIENCY WITHIN COMMUNITIES.
BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILD
We identify and cater to the unique needs of each individual child within our care, as we guide them through our rescue-restore-empower framework.
NO AGING OUT
We support children beyond the age of 18 through coaching, mentorship and financial support for trade school, university or to launch a business.
BREAKING CYCLES OF POVERTY
Through social enterprise, we provide employment for local families to lift economic stability. This also generates revenue to offset operational costs.
100% PROMISE TO DONORS
Corporate administrative costs are covered by Friends of Horizon, which means 100% of your donations go toward supporting care for children.
MICRO COMMUNITY AS AN IMPACT HUB
By addressing social wellbeing, stability and growth, the Micro-Community is the place in which we empower children and youth through strengthening families and building community resiliency.
We believe family is for every child.
FAMILY SHAPES OUR IDENTITY, GUIDES OUR VALUES
& CULTIVATES OUR SENSE OF BELONGING.
Each child, within Whole Family, is understood as an individual with unique needs. This allows us to navigate each situation with dignity and sensitivity, cultivating a safe way for children to thrive. Whole Family is a restorative path designed to lead each child into a family, supported by a Child Advocate. This all occurs within our Micro-Communities as well as within home-based care, resulting in children becoming empowered adults, living their own thriving, sustainable life in family.
EMPOWERING WHOLE FAMILY PROVIDES EACH CHILD WITH:
- A loving family who is passionate about rescuing, restoring and empowering children in crisis
- Family advocacy: each child has a social advocate dedicated to that child to pursue their best interest
- Consistent provision of nutritious meals, safe shelter, clothing and other basic necessities
- Access to high quality education, counseling and other emotional and spiritual support
Empowering the next generation to make impact.
YOUTH ARE THE KEY TO THRIVING GENERATIONS,
COMMNUNITY RESILIENCY AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT.
We want to prevent the ongoing dysfunctional cycle orphaned, vulnerable and at-risk children face when transitioning from childhood to adolescence to adulthood. Our youth program is a deepened approach for children in our care. it is about striking a balance between ensuring that the youth have all the support they need without fostering dependency.
EMPOWERING LEGACY YOUTH PROVIDES EACH YOUNG ADULT WITH:
- Higher education and/or training according to their life plan
- Community engagement and service
- Holistic health and access to support
- Comprehension and access to local and global economic markets
Multiplying generational empowerment.
IMPACT INVESTING THROUGH SOCIAL ENTERPRISE HELPS TO
PREVENT POVERTY BY UNLEASHING LOCAL TALENT AND RESOURCES
Social enterprise is about partnering with the communities and local businesses within the area we serve to provide them with the resources and tools to establish sustainable enterprises, creating opportunity, equity, and resilient communities that give back. Our aim is for full, unfettered, empowerment, which goes beyond simply providing resources and tools for children to thrive in life.
IMPACT INVESTING CREATES EMPOWERMENT BY:
- Creating a social ecosystem of support for each child and their caregivers.
- Providing opportunities and upward mobility within the community so children can thrive.
- Mobilizing support within the community around each child’s holistic well-being.
- Empowering young adults to give back and witness their own impact within the community.
