It was such a blessing to be in community with our New York Children's Defense Fund this summer. The tremendous brilliance of our young scholars is a blessing to behold and is undeniable. Children's Defense Fund-NY thanks the Partnership with Children for your partnership.

Every day, thousands of New Yorkers who are living in poverty overcome enormous challenges to build better lives, often with help from Robin Hood’s community partners.

Their stories are a reminder that we have the power come together and create better futures for our families, our neighbors, and our city

At Partnership with Children, we work to address the stressors that impact our students' mental health and the communities we serve. Being hungry impacts students' ability to focus and function in school. PWC directly supports students that experience these types of stressors by providing food pantries in multiple community schools.

This week, we are highlighting Ps 194 Countee Cullen's amazing Fresh Finds Food Pantry! Fresh Finds' motto is " From Our House to Yours." Fresh Finds provides accessible, healthy food to all family members and community members. "We seek to address and mitigate food insecurities in our community and create opportunities for all members of our community school from Tuesday to Friday from 10am-4pm" Camille Gill, Community School Director, PS 194.

Chronic absenteeism affects one in ten students nationwide. Regular attendance is vital for students academic success. Taking action to engage students and families is essential for combatting absenteeism, enrollment declines, and educational inequities. Partnerships with Children helps remove obstacles that students might face so that they can be more engaged. As obstacles look different for each school and family across NYC, we partner with our students, their families, and the school community to meet their specific needs.

In honor of this month, we have highlighted a few PWC initiatives that help encourage our students to come to school below!

Food pantry & Coat Drives: Families can pick up food and any pantry items that they might need. Our coat drives help remove any obstacles students may face as we approach winter.

Home visits: PWC conducts home visits for students who have been absent for a long time and we are unable to reach their families.

Attendance Award Parties:
Rockaway Collegiate High School Attendance team has a monthly attendance carnival for students who have a good attendance record.
PS 284 has monthly parades where the school team would parade around the school to celebrate classrooms with good attendance records with certificates as well as trophies.

41% of NYC students were chronically absent last school year 09/19/2022

41% of NYC students were chronically absent last school year

"Last year’s chronic absenteeism rate was the highest the city has recorded in decades, according to figures from NYU’s Research Alliance, and also the highest rate during the pandemic."

Partnership with Children works to improve attendance in the schools we partner with. In SY18-19, 75% of our chronically absent students increased their attendance, with an average gain of 8.5 percentage points. 63% increased their attendance to 90% or above so that they were no longer considered chronically absent.

Welcome back to school! Today, over 30,000 NYC students return to schools that Partnership with Children supports. As we start a new school year, PWC remains committed to providing trauma-informed mental health services and social-emotional support to our students all year.

Wishing our students & their families a great first day of school and a year full of learning, growing, fun, and adventure!


As came to a close, our families came out to support their scholars’ participation this summer. Each of our sites held a finale event on August 11th in which scholars shared all the things they learned this summer – We all can make a difference in ourselves, our family, our community, our country, and our world with hope and education and action.


Partnership with Children's CEO Wesner Pierre recently participated in the panel, "Adapting to the Future of Work," hosted by JobsFirstNYC. Wesner engaged in conversation with Dr. Michael Baston and Reuben Ogbonna, who work every day to create a more equitable world for our youth.

Wesner spoke about PWC's transformational work in the lives of young people across New York City, specifically through our mental health services in schools and trauma-informed practices. Thank you, JobsFirst NYC, for creating the space to have these meaningful discussions!

OPINION: Community schools promote equity: We need more of them 08/16/2022

OPINION: Community schools promote equity: We need more of them

"Community schools become hubs for students and communities. Often open evenings and over weekends and summers, they bring together families, students, teachers and local organizations to identify and provide health, social and out-of-school-time support."

OPINION: Community schools promote equity: We need more of them Additional education funding is a step in the right direction, but there is far more that must be done

We’re so grateful to UnitedHealthcare and UnitedHealthcare Empowering Health for a $275,000 grant that will allow Partnership with Children to infuse the healing power of the arts in our schools. With their support, we will reach children in 11 school-based mental health programs citywide and also be able to offer trauma-informed arts programming. Thank you so much, UnitedHealthcare!


Partnership with Children remains dedicated to ensuring Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) students and their families across NYC have access to quality mental health services. PWC mental health services will continue to be critical as the communities we serve experience trauma from housing and financial insecurity, systemic racism, and loss from the COVID-19 pandemic.

This month serves as an important reminder to focus on the mental health and well-being of our BIPOC students, teachers, staff, and community members.


Last week, the Partnership with Children & The Center for Arts Education team developed a Professional Development opportunity for Teaching Artists to see their classrooms through the lens of Trauma Informed Practices and Social Emotional Learning.

As of October 1, 2021, The Center for Arts Education has officially merged with Partnership with Children. We look forward to exploring these intersections further together!


Partnership with Children is excited to announce our new Chief of Staff, Jerry Hyppolite! Jerry has over 15 years of experience overseeing personnel, logistics, compliance, and operations across NYC, a deep understanding of youth development programs, and is a proud mental health advocate. Welcome to the PWC family!


CAE's Parents as Art Partners program offers families the unique opportunity for students to express themselves creatively while deepening their connection with each other.

This past month, one of our talented Teaching Artists, Charlotte Gapp, lead our PAAP program at PS 194. Charlotte focused on the connection between visual arts and mindfulness/social-emotional competencies. Students and families were able to learn more about the human mind while engaging in the arts together! See some of their finished work below!


This week, the Supreme Court issued two devastating decisions that will severely impact the communities Partnership with Children serves as well as members of our team. Partnership with Children is committed to supporting the rights of the women on our team and in our communities. These rulings are incredibly disheartening, but we will never stop fighting for equity.
