Statement by Bill Weisberg, Interim CEO, The Children’s Aid Society

“We applaud Mayor de Blasio, Speaker Mark-Viverito, and the entire City Council for standing up for New York City children, especially those in underserved communities. The values reflected in this budget align with The Children’s Aid Society’s mission of helping children succeed and thrive. This budget takes a huge step in addressing the inequality that leaves too many children and families behind by prioritizing the less fortunate through investments in early childhood, after school, and summer youth employment. It solidifies New York City as a leader in reversing the un-American trend of underinvesting in low-income communities. We look forward to continuing to partner with the Administration and City Council to change the trajectory for our city’s most vulnerable children and families.”
