A Resident-Driven Community

The Key to a Vibrant Lifestyle is Openness to Possibilities

Just one look at the partial list of what goes on here, and you’ll see why Horizon House residents are known for their engagement in the community and the world around us — and why we’ve never needed a staff social director! The overwhelming majority of our programming is resident-generated and resident-managed.

And resident involvement doesn’t stop at our front door. Many of our residents are also active as volunteers in the broader community. So whether you want to stick with your current interests or develop new ones, our stimulating campus is just the place to do it.
