New Community for Children

New Community for Children (NCFC) provides children and youth with learning experiences that build up their academic, social, and creative skills. We believe that excellent educational opportunities are the key to helping families break out of the poverty cycle. We offer creative hands-on learning in our after school program, and advocate for healthy families and challenging schools to support that goal.

Springing Forward at New Community for Children!

Happy about homework time!

Spring has finally arrived, and so have some very exciting new components to New Community for Children's programming! At NCFC, we believe in providing enrichment activites that expose our students to new things in hopes of supporting them on their journey to becoming well rounded adults.  A few weeks ago, NCFC began offering pottery to our students. Pottery is an excellent way to combine science, art and hands-on learning. Our kids are learning so many new things and are truly loving this new experience.

NCFC has also started offering Youth Liter(acy) to our ABLE students. Youth Liter(acy) is an awesome curriculum that teaches literacy through hip-hop music. This component is proving to be quite successful in improving student literacy as well as encouraging the creative minds of our students!

Many wonderful things are happening at NCFC, and none of it could happen without you.  We thank you for contribution which helps us do this important work! We love connecting with visitors and friends, and hope you'll come visit us soon to see your contribution in motion!

Happiness abounds at NCFC!

Thank You from New Community for Children!

A special thank you!
A special thank you!

Today is a light day here at New Community for Children.  Many of our kids have already been picked up for the evening, eager begin celebrating Thanksgiving with their families. Seeing the joy and excitement on the faces of our students and families gives us something to really be thankful for.

We are thankful because we know that all the work that we put into NCFC is appreciated by those we serve.  It gives us a reason to keep providing a safe space for kids each day after school. We are so fortunate because we see every day that the work we do is not thankless.  That is why we must take a moment to thank you, our friends and supporters.

We could not do this work without you! Your continuous support of our program is so important to the students and staff here at NCFC.  You make our mission possible, and for that we are so grateful to you and for you! Thank you!

School's in Session at New Community for Children!

Boys Reading Club

After an awesome six-week summer program, New Community for Children opened our doors for the 2013-2014 school year this past Monday, August 26th! This summer’s ‘Read with Me, Learn with Me’ theme was a major success, so we are working hard to carry that success into the school year by launching great literacy focused programming that is sure to keep the progress going!

Our Literacy Plus initiative will allow each student to spend time with a Literacy Coach who will assess their reading skills and design programming that supports the strengths and combats the areas of concern for each student.  Our middle school students will participate in book clubs where they will choose the books their group reads and complete activities that demonstrate their reading comprehension skills. As you can see, literacy is key at NCFC!

This is going to be an exciting school year at New Community for Children!  We welcome visitors and friends to our regular Kids in Motion tours so that you can see firsthand all the wonderful things happening at NCFC. Our one-hour tours take place twice monthly.
