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 was founded on the belief that the challenges facing children and families in the community are more complex than any single organization can address on its own. This project is not simply about providing space for organizations to co-locate; it is meant to foster collaboration: to participate in a creative process to achieve outcomes for children and their families that no single organization could achieve on its own. The Commons will provide early childhood education, nutrition programs, parental supports, and emotional wellness, as well as out of school programs for children and youth.
