Who We Are

Bright Horizons Foundation for Children is a nonprofit organization focused on brightening the lives of children, youth, and families in crisis.

The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children was founded in 1999 to fulfill the mission to “make a difference in the lives of children and families in the communities where we live and work.” Through the Foundation, Bright Horizons supports nonprofit organizations with programs for children and families.

At Bright Horizons, we have a wealth of knowledge about children and families. Through the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children, we can extend the reach of our knowledge and commitment far beyond the walls of our centers, schools, and programs for enrolled families to at-risk children and families in the communities where Bright Horizons Family Solutions employees live and work. We do this by supporting programs that instill a positive self-concept and self-esteem in children; provide children and families with nurturing, creative environments; and support and facilitate the development of strong families.

We support a range of programs that serve children and families through volunteers, grants, and resources. Our signature program, Bright Spaces®, creates and supports play areas that brighten the lives of homeless children and families in crisis, serves almost 100,000 homeless children each year.
