Founded in 2009, Children of Promise NYC (CPNYC) is an organization with its headquarters in Bedford Stuyvesant that embraces children of incarcerated parents and empowers them to break the cycle of intergenerational involvement in the criminal justice system.

CPNYC the only agency in NYC that co-locates a licensed mental health clinic with an after-school program and summer day camp to seamlessly provide access to therapeutic services and youth development all under one roof.

As the program continues to grow, the organization needs community support to continue to provide these much-needed services. SUNY Downstate School of Public Health Student Council is raising funds to help support a pressing need of the organization – upgrading the CPNYC computer lab. This computer lab is home to daily programming for youth to learn computer skills, computer programming, and complete academic assignments. Parents also utilize the computer lab outside of the after-school hours to complete their own academic assignments, apply for public assistance, and look for other services for their families.

Though $10 is the suggested donation, there is no minimum or maximum donation amount!

The SPH Student Council will accumulate then transmit the total funds collected from this effort to Children of Promise, NYC.
