Committed to the empowerment of the East Harlem community in an environment that is respectful, collaborative, inclusive, and equitable for all.


Our Foundation Framework

Collective Impact: Improving child and family well-being and addressing family and community needs while building on their strengths.

Two-Generation/Multi-generational Approach: Creating programs and policies that address the needs of children and their families together.

Equity: Explicitly addressing issues of racial, gender, disability, and LGBTQ equity in communities, and implicit bias in service provision and policy.


The partnership hosts a variety of events and community activities throughout the year such as workshops, resource fairs, forums, and community gatherings.
