Annotation: This report presents statistics on the demographics of Community School District Six in New York City and information on the role of school-based services to assist the families of middle-school children at School 218.
Abstract: In 1987 the district served a neighborhood in which 40 percent of the households had incomes below $10,000 in 1989 and that ranked second among New York City precincts in juvenile reports filed for truancy and drug abuse and in child abuse reports. No major youth organization served the district. Professional counseling and treatment programs were nonexistent. The area also lacked public hospitals. Children's aid services in the school provide family, health, and educational services in the building. The family resource center assists families of school children in six areas: unemployment, homelessness, immigration issues, job counseling, educational advances such as the GED, and referrals to outside agencies. Parents assist as volunteers. Children's aid schools also provide full-service medical and dental clinics, breakfast programs, and programs before and after school and in the evenings and the summer. The programs have resulted in reduced violence and other crime in the area, a reduction in health problems treated in emergency rooms, daily asthma care in the school-based clinic. Table
