St. Ann's Freedom SchoolWhere It's Hard to be a Child in NYC
The Citizen's Committee for Children's Community Risk Ranking identifies the NYC neighborhoods where it is hardest to be a child. 

Episcopal Charities supports programs that target at-risk children and youth in these very neighborhoods. Read more in our latest blog post.
Last year many of our programs reached new milestones. The Horticultural Therapy Garden at St. Gregory's in Woodstock completed a fully accessible labyrinth, the Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison added three new undergraduate classes, and the Washington Heights Choir School at Holyrood Church saw two students awarded prestigious scholarships. Browse through these and many more successes in our photo feature here.
