Communities That Care
The Foundling’s Communities That Care system uses an evidence-based model to engage neighborhood partners and improve life outcomes for families living in East Harlem.
Housed within The Foundling’s Strong Families and Communities Training Center, our Communities That Care system works with a diverse coalition of partners within East Harlem – including local businesses, schools, health centers, religious institutions, other non-profits, and more – to create long-lasting community change.
The Communities That Care model’s evidence-based methodology has been proven to improve life outcomes for neighborhood residents, including better access to quality medical and mental health services, higher rates of educational success, reductions in violence and substance use, and other community improvements.
