Help us save
vital services for children.
The Campaign for Children, a coalition of over 150 children’s advocacy and provider organizations, firmly believes that every child in New York City deserves access to safe, high-quality, affordable and educational child care and after-school programs. Sadly, the child care and after-school systems are underfunded and unstable. Children are constantly at risk of losing care; parents face constant anxiety over whether their child’s program will be forced to close; and providers never know if they might lose their jobs.
Let your voices be heard and help save these vital programs!

Campaign for Children E-Action Day: Today!
An E-Action Day is a great day to send electronic letters to Mayor Bloomberg, the City Budget Office and other elected leaders telling them that they MUST save child care and after-school programs for over 47,000 children. On April 24, take action by emailing city leaders through this link.
The Campaign for Children invites you to join us for our 2013 Mayoral Forum on the future of early childhood education and after-school programs in New York City. The forum will be an opportunity for candidates to speak directly to voters about their vision for improving and expanding the city’s early childhood education and after-school systems.
