CHILD WELFARE

Children need safe, nurturing and permanent families. The Schuyler Center promotes policies that advance or maintain effective, high-quality systems that serve at-risk families, prevent entry into the child welfare system, and improve child well-being for children who are in care.

EARLY CHILDHOOD

Seventy-five percent of brain growth and 85% of intellect, personality and social skills develop before age 5—in the first 2,000 days of life—so it is imperative that we invest in our youngest children long before they enter school.

FAMILY ECONOMIC SECURITY

The Schuyler Center promotes policies that strengthen and support families, including those that secure or supplement a living wage. Nearly one in four New York children live in poverty; the rate is significantly higher in many New York City neighborhoods and several upstate cities.

HEALTH

The Schuyler Center works with government, providers and advocates to improve access to high-quality physical, dental, and behavioral health services. This is for New York’s most disenfranchised residents, particularly related to New York’s implementation of health care reform and redesign of the Medicaid program.
