When & Where
The Children's Aid Society
The partnership between The Children’s Aid Society and Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School and Middle School started in 2006. At both schools CAS provides Mental Health services, emergency relief (through the New York Times Neediest Fund) and preventive services –including Pregnancy Prevention; as well as After School, Holiday, Saturday, Summer and Youth Leadership opportunities. The Student Success Center provides case management for the college and financial aid process.
Medical and Dental services are provided through linking the schools to the nearby Children's Aid Bronx Family Center. Parenting workshops, vocational trainings, leadership, advocacy and literacy are offered to encourage parents and family engagement. Other adult education opportunities are being developed.
The schools are named after Fannie Lou Hamer (October 6, 1917 – March 14, 1977), who was an African-American civil rights leader during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement.
