Help Advocates for Children assist more New York City students
Who We Serve
Who We Serve
We serve ALL NYC students from birth through age 26, focusing on students from low-income backgrounds who are struggling in school or experiencing school discrimination of any kind.
For over 40 years, Advocates for Children of New York (AFC) has helped hundreds of thousands of families in New York City secure the best possible education for their children. We believe every child deserves a quality education regardless of the challenges they face. We offer a wide range of resources, such as fact sheets, referrals, guides, workshops, and trainings to help families stand up for their child’s educational rights. For low-income families who require more intensive assistance, our staff of attorneys and education specialists attend meetings with parents, represent parents in impartial hearings at the Department of Education, and handle administrative and court appeals.

AFC also works to change education policy so that the public school system serves ALL children of New York City effectively. For more information about Policy & Initiatives and Litigation, please click on the links.
