New York Times: Helping to Build a School for the Poor, by Selling One in a Wealthier Area
Today’s New York Times features a story on The Children’s Aid Society’s ongoing investments in some of New York City’s neediest communities.
Children’s Aid now concentrates its efforts in four high-needs neighborhoods—the South Bronx, Washington Heights, Harlem and East Harlem, and northern Staten Island—and is reallocating resources to make long-term investments to serve some of the city’s most vulnerable children in those communities.
Those plans include the expansion of our footprint in the South Bronx, where we have been steadily building a network of sites and services over the past decade.
In 2010, Children’s Aid Society purchased a four-story building at 910 East 172nd Street, now a spacious center with health and foster care services and part of a “full-service child welfare campus of several buildings” we are developing in the area.
