Thank you to the Horizon High School team for hosting a fantastic kick-off to this program. The Assistant Principal Lisa Saunar and Dean of Students Nicole Ward (also the Resource Closet Manager) have been the driving force for launching a Foundation Resource Closet at their school. A group of incredible students who believe in ALL Means ALL set up Huey's Home Goods to make it a welcoming spot for Horizon students and help kids SOAR.
Foundation Resource Closets are intended to be ‘triage support’ as students are tapped into long-term community resources. This initiative is increasing school attendance, providing social-emotional support to students and their families, and allowing the schools to ensure students are safe, healthy, and fed so they are learning-ready.
