Today we pay homage to a renowned author and poet, Langston Hughes. Since the 1920s, his many works depicting the black experience has resonated with audiences all over the country.

Judge Judith Kaye, one of New York's most esteemed legal minds and a fierce advocate for children and young people, put her powerful voice behind the Fostering Youth Success Alliance and its efforts to build better college outcomes for youth in and aging out of foster care. Read her op-ed and learn why New York must act for the young people in our foster care system. 
The reality today is that far too many young people leave foster care without the permanency and support of a stable family or the benefit of an education

Did you know that less than 10 percent of students from low-income families graduate from college by their mid-twenties? Or that people with college degrees make more money than those without? We have partnered with the 1:1 Fund and established the College Savers Program to help students and their families open and sustain college savings accounts. The program will match every $1 that a student saves, with $2 from donations. Help us give a child a chance at college! http://bit.ly/1tDtMrb #edchat #collegesavings #nyc

Ilene Pappert has spent the last forty years working with children in so many different capacities, all of them rooted in her skills as a social worker. As the director of our Goodhue Center, she has witnessed the many challenges and pressures our youth and their families face every day. Like the North Star, she is a constant presence that provides support and guidance to many in the community. She is the perfect example of why we celebrate National Social Work Month.

February is American Heart Month, and this month we can treat our heart to a little TLC by cutting back on some sweets: namely ADDED SUGARS. These are sugars and syrups that are added to foods or beverages when they are processed or prepared. Read more from our blog: bit.ly/1AhEBpn

Rosa Parks was a true hero. It’s absolutely fitting that her birthday falls during Black History Month. Please join us in recognizing her vital role in American history.

Future Proof is Dentsu Aegis Network's approach to corporate social responsibility. Through this initiative, employees from Dentsu Aegis Network have been sponsoring holiday gifts for the East Harlem Center for the last seven years. This year, on December 16th, the group brought along a very jolly friend. Santa Claus and Dentsu Aegis elves visited our Head Start classrooms to spread some holiday cheer. Each child received a wrapped gift, which brought wide smiles to all the young faces. Denstu Aegis also collected toys for participants in the early childhood programs.

Thank you again to our friends at Dentsu Aegis Network for their continued partnership with Children’s Aid and for becoming part of our family at the East Harlem Center!

It's great when companies give back to their communities. Capitalism doesn't have to be heartless, and this proves it.

Story
Tagline
New York-based charity providing critical services to children and their families.
Introduction
The Children’s Aid Society helps children in poverty to succeed and thrive. We do this by providing comprehensive supports to children and their families in targeted high-needs New York City neighborhoods.

No child should be born into poverty, but as we know all too well, millions are. In New York City, nearly 1 out of every 3 children is poor. It is our city’s highest rate of child poverty in decades.

We owe these children more. They deserve a fair opportunity to take part in the American Dream — the idea that where you end up in life should not be determined by where you started. At The Children’s Aid Society, that’s our promise to New York City’s children.

We serve New York’s neediest children and their families at more than 45 locations in the 5 boroughs and Westchester County. Our caring begins before birth, through prenatal counseling and assistance, and continues through the high school years with college and job preparatory training programs. We also offer a host of services for parents, including housing assistance, domestic violence counseling and health care access.

Together, we can help prepare vulnerable New York City children for what we believe is the ultimate goal: college graduation.
