To date, the group has made two multi-year grants: one to Beacon House (www.beaconhousedc.org) and the other to Horton’s Kid’s (www.hortonskids.org). Each beneficiary has a long history of helping needy children and each currently faces growth issues. Beacon House is considering requests to expand innovative after-school program from its current base in the Edgewood neighborhood to additional areas in Ward 5 in order to serve more children. Horton’s Kids is currently addressing the best way to whittle down the waiting list for children who want to participate in visionary tutoring programs that pair local professionals with children from Anacostia.
Looking toward the future, Doyle is optimistic. “Capital for Children has already begun making a difference in our community. With continued support of our members, I am confident we will be able to help more organizations in the future.” To that end, Capital for Children continues to search out great management teams running innovative programs helping the neediest children in our area.
