Children's Museum of Manhattan

Log Number: MA-20-19-0340-19

The children's Museum of Manhattan will install learning hubs for children ages 0-3 in eight homeless shelters across Harlem, Brooklyn, and the Bronx. Project activities will be designed to respond to city-wide challenges surrounding the growing number of families living in homeless shelters and barriers to early learning for children in low-resourced communities. The museum will install graphics and exhibit components in the shelters and design and implement skill-building workshops for approximately 700 children and their adult caregivers. Project activities will also include organizing and leading community meetings and sustaining relationships with each shelter through family festivals, online resources, and other strategies. The museum will work with an external evaluator to measure program impact and sustainability.
