Huey's Home Goods at Horizon High School brings the Five Star Foundation Resource Closets to 37 schools in the Adams 12 Five Star Schools district!

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.

Support this good work by becoming a monthly donor!
