Antonia Caba only sees her four children for a few brief minutes each morning. At night, she works at a call center in Manhattan where she earns just $200 a week. Despite the assistance she receives each month, Antonia still struggles to pay her bills.

Through The Children's Aid Society and The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund, Antonia received $1800 for clothing and furniture, $1000 in gift cards, and $800 to buy a new bureau and bed for her children. Take a look at Antonia's amazing story via The New York Times.

Love this Man... So grateful there exists other Like Minded individuals, not suffering from the condemnation, that was once so prevalent.... God Bless you Dr. Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr...  May we live long enough to see all your dreams come to pass... Or leave a Legacy, that others will follow... Just as You have done...

The conference celebrates National Women’s History Month by bringing together women of the community for an evening of entertainment, empowerment and growth.

The staff at SU campus honored two dedicated and committed Children’s Aid staff members, Hersilia Mendez, Director of External Affairs and Communications for National Center for Community Schools and Jennifer Archibald, Educational Coordinator at SU Campus, for their contributions to the Washington Heights community!

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.
