Horton’s Kids launched one of the first CityTutor Hubs in 2021 and will continue operating from Horton’s Kids new hub site in DC’s Ward 8, near the Wellington Park and Stanton Oaks neighborhoods this year. Horton’s Kids is deeply embedded in neighborhoods in southeast DC that have experienced decades of disinvestment. They provide extensive academic enrichment, structured social/emotional learning opportunities, and family support services.
Erica Ahdoot, Executive Director of Horton’s Kids, said the organization is committed to supporting the whole child. “Our second year as a Hub will support the continuation of a vibrant learning environment where students can come to strengthen their academic skills, eat a healthy meal, and engage positively with peers and adults.”
