City Connects works with more than 700 community partners who provide services, resources, and enrichment opportunities to children and families. We believe that as rich as the community services are, they are most effective when they are tailored to the individual needs of students.
Our community partners report a very high level of satisfaction with City Connects.
Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12 living in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive—at home, at school, and at play. In the 2014-2015 school year, City Connects and Cradles to Crayons's collaboration included nearly 1000 children in the Boston area. In October Cradles to Crayons was kind enough to host our City Connects Coordinators and get them supplied to make a huge impact on children. Thanks to them for being such a valued partner!
"City Connects helped bring programs around the school's community together to work on achieving a common goal. It led every program to better understand each other and understand students' specific needs." - Boston Community Partner
