On November 1, 2007, Charlie Horn, a 2-year-old, was killed when he attempted to climb a 30″ dresser in his home.
It was through this tragedy that Charlie’s House was born.
What started as a memorial and an outpouring of public support has grown into a 501 (c)(3) not for profit organization with safety at its core – dedicated to keeping the community informed and engaged when it comes to preventing injuries to children in and around the home.
As part of this mission, Charlie’s House participates in and sponsors community-wide events to provide home safety information. Construction on Charlie’s Safety House is underway. This safety demonstration house will provide adults with real-life demonstrations, examples and resources on children’s safety.
