This year’s Horizon House Community Leaders Awards were presented to David Kauffman, BNI Main Line I, Karen Ebbert, Networking Women PA, Patricia Nogar, The Sophia Group, and Pamela Follo Badolato, The Plaid Pajama Project. The awards are our way of thanking our community partners and highlighting the exemplary partnerships which collaboratively have transformed the lives of the men and women we serve.
Have you ever wondered how disadvantaged students afford the school supplies they need? According to a new survey from Deloitte that analyzes back-to-school buying trends, parents will spend an estimated $510 per household on school supplies this year.
Thanks to the generosity of BNI Mainline I- Voices initiative, students in our PEACE program and parents in our Housing programs received a little assistance to begin the school year. 150 backpacks, loaded with school supplies were donated and distributed. At Horizon House we understand that support to the men and women we serve is more than a mere treatment of a diagnosis. Our goal is for the whole person to thrive. This act of kindness from our BNI Mainline I community partners truly alleviated stress and anxiety for the recipients.
The development of our new headquarters at 59th and Market Street is well on its way. Rather than just inviting you to the unveiling in 2020, come, take a peek with us to witness the progress thus far. New Market West will be much more than an office as it will bring child care, retail shops, and low-income housing that will benefit both the local community, our participants, and staff.
