Corporations and individuals have both been registering, recognizing this session is an opportunity to expand their knowledge and understanding in diversity, equality and inclusion (DEI) topics. Proceeds from the event support the non-profit's early education centers and its Playspace Program, which provide safe places for children to play and learn while the family is living in a homeless shelter. Additionally, Horizons' Family Partnerships Program helps parents use their strengths to navigate the often frightening and frustrating terrain of homelessness.

This year's event will aim to further the national discussion around racial equity while supporting Horizons for Homeless Children, an organization that is countering systemic racism by empowering families of color every day and working to make a more equitable future for all via unique and dynamic support systems. Across the nation, the population of homeless children and families continues to grow, with more than 20,000 children under six experiencing homelessness each year in Massachusetts alone. 77% of the children Horizons' serve are Black, Hispanic or Multiracial, according to their latest demographic report.

Don't miss this event which will be full of important discussions and the opportunity to help children experiencing homelessness! Purchase your tickets today.
