Meet Bigyan

“When I grow up I want to be a SUPERHERO!”

“When I grow up I want to be a SUPERHERO!”

Bigyan’s family enrolled in Horizons for Homeless Children’s programs when he was just three months old. Throughout his time at Horizons, Bigyan has been supported by a team of Horizons staff who are trained in trauma-informed care. They are knowledgeable and effective in working with young children who are experiencing the trauma of homelessness.

Since he arrived, Bigyan has become a big personality at one of Horizons’ early education centers. His preschool teachers call him smart, outgoing, and friendly. He loves singing songs for his friends, and talking to everyone about his day. You can often find him playing with letter blocks, listing out words that start with those letters.

Through Horizons’ whole family approach, Bishnu is also supported. A Family Advocate helps keep her on track and access resources she needs to accomplish her goals. Knowing that her son was safe and well cared for at Horizons, Bishnu was able to go back to school and get a job.

“Horizons has helped me learn how to be a better parent for Bigyan, and has connected me with other parents in the network to talk to,” said Bishnu.

“More than that, I learned a lot about myself – about stressors, better ways to take care of us, and more. I am very grateful to everyone at Horizons for their help.”
