Please join us for one of our upcoming events and help us raise awareness and funds to support our hard working students. We hope you will join the Horizons for Youth community.



On Cloud Nine was founded in 2001 in memory of Paige Barnett, who passed away unexpectedly on February 4, 2000. Tragically, she was only 18 months old. Paige’s parents, Kent Barnett and Lauren Heath, had been involved with Horizons for Youth for many years, and the Paige Barnett Memorial Fund was created in Paige’s memory. On Cloud Nine benefits Paige’s fund and supports the children of Horizons for Youth. This year we remembered Lauren in a special way at the gala as she was reunited with Paige in July 2015 after a courageous 18-month battle with brain cancer. Join us at the next On Cloud Nine on February 3, 2018.



No Ordinary Evening was founded to remember and celebrate the life of Declan Drumm Sullivan, who was tragically killed in an accident at the University of Notre Dame on October 27, 2010. His family created the Declan Drumm Sullivan Memorial Fund to memorialize Declan’s life. The Declan Drumm Sullivan Memorial Fund supports organizations that demonstrate substantial local impact in the areas of education and community service. The primary beneficiary of the event is Horizons for Youth. Join us at the next No Ordinary Evening on April 28, 2018.



We take our students and their mentors on monthly Enrichment Outings, exposing them to a variety of places and activities that they might not otherwise encounter. Students broaden their experiences and perspectives, while strengthening relationship with their mentors. Activities during the last year included exploring the Garfield Park Conservatory, enjoying the views from the Willis Tower Skydeck, bowling, and learning to skate at a local ice rink. Learn more….
