Parents, caregivers, and families have access to relevant resources and actively participate in their child’s development.
Compared to other communities on Staten Island, the North Shore experiences a significant increase in the rate of children living in poverty. These numbers are even more alarming when broken down by race/ethnicity, socioeconomics, disability status, English language proficiency, and parent educational attainment.
To combat the increase of children living in poverty, the Staten Island Alliance works with North Shore parents, caregivers, and families to gain access to relevant resources so they can more actively support their child’s development.
How We Will Measure Success
THE STATEN ISLAND ALLIANCE WILL USE THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA TO MONITOR THE SUCCESS OF OUTCOMES FOR OUR FAMILY ENGAGEMENT EFFORTS:
An increase in the number and percent of parents and/ or caregivers who report actively promote learning and healthy development in the home and community.
An increase in the number and percent of parents and/or caregivers who report involvement at a child’s pre-school or elementary school.
By 2022, the Staten Island Alliance will improve the overall well being of
children ages birth through eight years old on the North Shore community of Staten Island.
