We Need Your Support, Now More Than Ever

Please help ensure NYC’s most vulnerable children, youth and families have access to online education and basic needs during the COVID-19 health crisis!


New Yorkers For Children (NYFC) and our partner the New York City Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) are working diligently to assess the immediate and emerging needs of the communities we serve in the face of the COVID-19 crisis.

NYFC is working to provide hundreds of foster youth in college with computers, housing support in the face of dorm closures, funds to cover basic needs, and emotional support during these challenging times.

ACS - through its strong, vested outreach across the city - is receiving urgent requests for help with food, cleaning supplies, computers, learning materials, and emergency funding to cover rent and utilities following reduced or loss of work.

With your help, we will be able to deliver the following:

  • Basic tablets and laptops to get our foster children and youth connected to the Department of Education’s online learning portals
  • Emergency assistance for foster youth in college, foster families, and families involved in the wider ACS community who are struggling to meet basic needs

Please donate today. Thank you!
