This organization is one of the best I have ever seen at instilling faith-based values in young children as well as giving them a hands up through tutoring. I hope they continue to grow so that they can help more and more children!

I love this organization! I love supporting them both personally by volunteering every week and enlisting the support of friends and financially through donations and supporting their annual luncheons. I have watched the children grow and prosper under their leadership. I think they set themselves apart by their faith-based approach to tutoring and mentoring the kids and teens. Thanks to all who are involved in this effort!

I just want to say thank New Horizons from the bottom of my heart for the help my students have been getting this year! As I prepare report cards and look at end of quarter data, there has been a significant increase in both reading and math grades and test scores– representing an average 7 month increase in the 2.5 months since the quarter began in late January!

The students are also demonstrating more personal responsibility and self-confidence. I cannot thank you enough for offering such an outstanding program to our students.

I started as a tutor and loved the work. The kids we work with are like little sponges. The look on their faces as they learn something new brings tears to your eyes. I am no longer able to do the tutoring. The wonderful staff found a new place for me in their office. I know what I am doing supports a terrific program , I feel very Blessed.

For me one of the approaches that sets New Horizons apart from some of the other after school mentoring and tutoring programs, is the nondenominational faith building component. From my perspective, it provides the hope and the moral compass that so many of these children need to be able to break the generational cycle of poverty they find themselves in. Unfortunately, public school systems today are not able to provide this important character building component of their development. I see the "hope" on their faces every day I tutor~

It is unfortunate that an organization with so many good attributes feels it needs to push so called 'Christian values' on young people as part of it's program. Why can it not embrace everyone unconditionally?

I have worked for New Horizon Super Kids Reading Camp for the last two summers. The amount of growth I have seen in the student's reading confidence, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension skills is impressive! Students' understanding and love for the Lord through the VBS portion is heartwarming. New Horizons has a special place in my heart and is truly a wonderful impact on Southwest Florida's families.
