Measures of Success

found permanent adoptive families through our foster care services
purchased by our families at three Children's Aid locations
Children’s Aid has been at the forefront of the community schools strategy in New York City, which integrates holistic social services into school buildings located in under-resourced neighborhoods. The model has been implemented across New York State, the U.S., and internationally. We advocate for sustained funding at the city, state, and federal levels to increase long-term academic success. We have also been long-time champions of quality after-school programming, and work to ensure that all community school partnerships are in accordance with the Every Student Succeeds Act.
