Carlla Horton, MPA

There is Life After Abuse

CarlLa Horton was appointed Executive Director of Hope’s Door in 1997, three years after receiving her graduate degree from the School of Business and Public Administration at Bernard Baruch College where she graduated first in her executive MPA class. Horton grew up in a family plagued by poverty, sexual violence, and domestic violence and sees her work as an outgrowth of her social justice, anti-racist, and feminist principles. During her tenure at Hope’s Door, the agency’s annual revenues grew from $560,000 to more than $3.1 million. Accomplishments include:

  • Developed and secured four corporate sponsors to launch the “Next Step Economic Empowerment Program.”
  • Developed the program and secured $1.9 million to launch the Hope’s Door Legal Center.
  • Designed “Love Shouldn’t Hurt,” our seven-time award-winning teen dating abuse program.
  • Helped launch and coordinate the Northern Westchester Risk Reduction Team now expanding countywide as the Westchester County Domestic Violence High Risk Team.
  • Secured the donation of a facility and start-up funds to open Hope’s Door Ossining.

Horton serves on the NYS Office for Prevention of Domestic Violence Advisory Council, Westchester County Domestic Violence Council, the Westchester Women’s Agenda, and the Legislative Committee of the New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, among other work. In 2003, the Pace Women’s Justice Center awarded Horton a Certificate of Appreciation citing her as a “true leader in the community response network approach to ending domestic violence.” In 2005, the Zonta Club of Westchester named Horton their 2005 Woman of the Year describing her as “a world-class community activist who has dedicated her career to the support of women in need.” In 2008, the Avon Foundation asked Horton to accept their Community Advocate award.
