This year’s Census data reveals that 23% of New York children live in poverty. “Poverty is linked with negative conditions such as inadequate child care…and under-resourced schools,” states the American Psychological Association.
There is a vital need for quality early childhood education programs for children newborn to three years old. Our initiatives have touched the lives of thousands in our community – whether through our excellent learning centers, professional development program, or Book-per-Child initiative – HMESF is your community foundation!
HMESF counts on your support – now more than ever. Your gift is extremely important to making an immediate impact on children who do not receive the same educational support we sometimes take for granted.
Please consider making as generous a gift as you can this year. Your contribution of $50, $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000 or more can make all the difference to children, parents, and teachers in our community.
