Horizons for Homeless Children is a statewide organization assisting children who have no stable home. The non-profit helps more than 1,500 children each week, providing high-quality early education, opportunities for play, and family support services. Horizons for Homeless Children is looking for volunteers, and the next training session is scheduled for early April. Staffer Meghan Schafer joins Townsquare Sunday host Jim Phillips this week to discuss Horizons for Homeless Children, what volunteers do, and how you can help.
