New York Times article focuses on a Partnership with Children student
Recently The New York Times ran an incredible piece entitled “Invisible Child” which focused on one of Partnership with Children’s students, Dasani, who lives in a homeless shelter in Brooklyn and finds support in our programs at her school. Read the full 5-part series here.
Schools are often the only place to reach children like Dasani, and yet schools are often ill-equipped to deal with the complex issues of intergenerational poverty and inadequate services. That’s where Partnership with Children comes in… Each day we work in schools to create circles of support for the over 17,000 students we serve. We reach these children. We support their teachers. We help their principals transform their schools.
Partnership with Children is often the last line of support for our city’s most vulnerable children. Partnership with Children makes schools safer and better places to learn; they have higher attendance; better academic outcomes; a positive climate; and more effective teaching.
