New York is an expensive city. The high cost of living exacerbates economic inequality for children and families living in low-income neighborhoods. For so many, rent becomes too burdensome, which leaves families at risk of eviction, or a last minute emergency wipes clean any discretionary funds that may have provided some stability for the month.
As a beneficiary of The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund, Children’s Aid is able to provide thousands of the families we serve with emergency financial assistance when they find themselves in difficult circumstances that threaten their security and stability. Each year, The New York Times shares some of the stories of those who have received support during the past year. You can read all of the stories profiling Children’s Aid clients from the previous campaigns, and keep up with the stories from this year’s campaign through January 2019.
We hope you will consider supporting the fund this year to help us and the seven other organizations that partner with The New York Times continue to provide much needed relief to those in need.
