Children's Aid Remembers Joy Dryfoos
We mourn the loss of our colleague, mentor and friend Joy Dryfoos, who died peacefully at home on Saturday, March 17. Joy was an inspiration and champion for our community schools work, here in New York City, nationally and internationally. She loved to visit our schools and to bring policymakers, funders and other leaders to see them “in action.” She challenged us to make our work better and she documented our work so that others could learn from it. There is no one quite like Joy and we are grateful to have had her in our lives for these past two decades.
Vice President for Community Schools and Director, National Center for Community Schools
