Partnership with Children Fall Update

Dear Friends,

This fall has been full of unexpected change and opportunity for Partnership with Children. Like many other organizations in New York City, our students, schools and staff were all affected by Hurricane Sandy. In the wake of this disaster Governor Andrew Cuomo announced an $8.2 million grant from FEMA for “Project Hope”. “Project Hope” will provide crisis counseling to those in the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy, including New York City.

Partnership with Children is one of the organizations that have been chosen, through the Department of Education and Department of Mental Health, to provide vital support to help New Yorkers cope with these traumatic experiences and rebuild their lives. The effects of the storm have brought the many struggles that Partnership with Children’s students face every day, into the spotlight. Partnership with Children continues and expands the important work we do to care for children who have experienced unbelievable hardship and seemingly insurmountable challenges. We are continuing our work with the highest-need students and schools to embed the social and emotional skills necessary to deal with the everyday stressors that have now increased exponentially due to the storm. Our social workers are providing the critical counseling services, crisis intervention and grief and loss training. Partnership with Children is proud to be entering additional schools, and serve additional students, to contribute to the success of “Project Hope”.

Our success in providing vital social and emotional support to children and youth in high-poverty schools is a direct result of the generous support of friends such as you. Thank you again for your kind contribution and commitment to the young people of New York City.
