One Year After the Peak

Children's Aid's children, youth, and families
Children's Aid's children, youth, and families

One year ago, New York City was emerging as the global epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since that time, you and 1,764 other generous people from New York City, across the United States, and from five different countries around the world helped raise about $160,000 for our city’s young people. It’s been truly remarkable how the global community unites to care for one another during a time of crisis.  

Over the past year, we’ve been dismayed by the loss and hardship, but also inspired by strangers helping strangers, children and families overcoming adversity, and the rapid development of vaccines. We have now passed the worst of the pandemic and hope to soon return to a sense of normalcy, but issues still remain. Like so many others impacted by this pandemic, our children, youth, and families continue to grapple with academic losses, hunger, poverty, unemployment, and emotional wellness. But we remain assured by the inspirational words of our young people and their families. We’d like to share a few of those with you:

  • “Starting my first college experience online in an asynchronous course, I took advantage of tutoring that Children’s Aid provided and that changed my life. I started to see my grades increase, and now I have a 3.8 GPA.”

  • “It feels like a family. Like I have support. These are people who care about me and my children, and want to see me succeed as much as I want to see myself succeed.”
    -Karen, whose children received mental health support this past year (pictured center)


  • “Playing at school with my friends is so much fun! I love my teachers and singing songs in class.”
    -Antonio (pictured right)
