Annual Report 2002
An Enduring Mission in Times of Change
In 2002, The Children’s Aid Society proved that “We’re Everywhere You Look” is not just a slogan. While the city reeled from a devastating terrorist attack and a severe economic downturn, Children's Aid opened its doors and its arms to thousands of victims’ families and displaced workers through our newly created World Trade Center Relief unit. The agency distributed millions in emergency cash assistance and provided desperately needed counseling, benefits assistance, child care, scholarship help and more.
