Dalio Foundation Continues to Support Whole-Child/Whole-Family Approach to Health, Wellness & Le
Like the three school years before this one, we have been able to serve New Haven public school children by offering support -- therapy and care coordination -- to those experiencing trauma and/or facing complex circumstances.
Things like abuse, neglect, loss of a loved one, food insecurity, housing insecurity and perhaps even medical issues (asthma, diabetes) can swirl together and serve as a real barrier to well-being and classroom learning. But with the support of the The Dalio Foundation (Westport, CT), we can continue to work together to help children find a way through that adversity.
What's more, we know the efforts are working. We track the progress of those we serve, and we see great trends: things like improved attendance, better grades and fewer suspensions. We are incredibly grateful for the Dalio Foundation's commitment to the work so that we can report these outcomes.
