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.
