Eve Stotland Points to Nonprofit Referrals for Assisting Migrant Children

Eve Stotland (’99), Senior Program Officer at The New York Community Trust, penned a letter to the editor of The New York Times responding to “Officials Shrug as Youths Miss School to Work,” Mar. 14. “New York does have a solution to migrant children who sell candy on the subway: Dozens of charities and mutual aid groups, many of which receive government funding, enroll children in school, distribute food and connect adults to work. . . . When they need help, nonprofits — rather than the police or the child welfare system — are the best place to turn.”
