These calls have gone unanswered. This is simply unacceptable when millions are jobless, children are housing and food insecure, and child care providers are fighting to keep read more…

Opening Schools

“The worst is that the teachers might not always see your hand when you’re raising it. I really miss my friends and play dates. My mommy, and sometimes my daddy, have to help because it’s too hard sometimes” – Noah Bresler, 6, Brooklyn     There’s no question that most children would rather be in school. “Kids are getting more bored by the day,” writes 11-year-old Harry Dodd in the New York Times. “We wish we could go back to read more…

Did you know that food stamps provide 10 times the relief offered by local food pantries? Both are necessary to feed families dependent on the minimum wage.

  While volunteering in a children’s summer program, I often saw a foster child run to the teacher’s desk each day and ask if their foster parent had dropped off lunch. Lunch was never there, and the child was offered a daily peanut butter sandwich. This was humiliating because others had good food from home.
