The Commons at Stanton Square is a campus for community programs that supports the healthy development of children and their families in a welcoming and safe environment. The Commons will provide quality programs that focus on education, youth development, nutrition, parental supports, and emotional wellness to help support the growth of a community where all children and families thrive.
The Commons at Stanton Square is a campus for community programs being developed in Ward 8 through the collaborative efforts of the Horning Family Fund, Horning Brothers, Community of Hope, and Martha’s Table.
The Commons will be a welcoming place that will include not only mixed-income housing, but a campus that will provide programs to support children and their families living at or near Stanton Square.
Together with neighbors in the surrounding Fort Stanton and Hillsdale communities, the Horning Family Fund, Horning Brothers, Martha’s Table, and Community of Hope are advancing a shared vision of positive outcomes for families and children.
Since 2015, the four lead partners have worked together to identify shared goals and metrics; develop collaborative programs; conduct knowledge sharing sessions; and expand community engagement efforts. The partners at The Commons look forward to continued collaboration with community members to achieve far greater outcomes for children and families than any one of us could achieve on our own.
