Horizons for Homeless Children provides a safe environment from the violence and poverty faced by children living in shelters or temporary housing. Many times these children lack sleep because of the environment they live in. "Shelters aren't in good neighborhoods, said Andrea Urbano, Director of HHC's Center-Based Programs. "Were their killings, were there police activity, was there fights around. All that effects what is happening to the child, and they're exhausted." Extra care is taken to make sure these children feel comfortable to sleep.<br />
