On November 1, 2007, Charlie Horn, a 2-year-old Kansas City boy, was killed when he attempted to climb a 30″ dresser in his home. It was through this tragedy that Charlie’s House was born.
Brett and Jenny Horn, Charlie’s parents, turned their tragedy into a mission. The Horns began a movement to reduce in-home accidents through increased public awareness and education. Through this effort, Charlie’s House was established and serves as a resource for families seeking information on safety and injury prevention. The mission, to prevent accidents and injuries to children in and around the home, is fulfilled through increased awareness, public education, and distribution of safety devices.
