As New York City's children living in poverty recover from the pandemic, they continue to grapple with hunger, emotional wellness, homelessness, and academic losses. At community schools and community centers across New York City, we are providing robust pandemic relief services in food assistance, health and mental health, family supports, and academic enrichment to 50,000 young people and their family members.

Challenge

New York City's children living in poverty face enormous challenges during our recovery from the pandemic. Approximately 50% of our families are food insecure, and across the city, 35% of parents say their children's emotional health has been impacted. Homelessness in the city has risen to the highest point since the Great Depression, and students nationwide are anywhere from five to nine months behind in their learning. Vaccine hesitancy is also markedly higher among low-income families.

Solution

Our wide array of services tackle these most pressing concerns among New York City's children. We're providing food boxes to hungry families, and mental health care to young people in distress. Our family services help families in crisis avoid homelessness and foster care placements, and at school, we offer remote and in-person schooling and tutoring. At our eight health clinics and over the phone, our doctors and nurses are answering questions about COVID-19 and the vaccine.

Long-Term Impact

Our food packages ensure children avoid hunger and grow up strong and healthy, and our therapists help prevent long-lasting emotional trauma. Homelessness and foster care placements can thwart a child's life trajectory, so maintaining stability in the home is critical to a child's future. Academic services will help children avoid delays in future college and career prospects by teaching them and keeping them engaged, and addressing vaccine concerns will help us all achieve herd immunity faster.
