The mission of The DOME Project is to assist young people who are economically, socially, and academically challenged to focus on their education as a means to success. The overall goal is to provide youngsters with alternatives to the negative pressures they face every day in their communities and to help them develop a healthy, positive sense of themselves as individuals who can thrive in society.

The Campaign for Fiscal Equity
The Campaign for Fiscal Equity, Inc. is a coalition of parent organizations, community school boards, concerned citizens, and advocacy groups. It seeks to reform New York State's school finance system to ensure adequate resources and the opportunity for a sound basic education for all students in New York City. Its efforts will help secure the same opportunity for students throughout the state who are not currently receiving a sound basic education.
For over 35 years Advocates for Children of New York, Inc. (AFC) has worked in partnership with New York City's most impoverished and vulnerable families to secure quality and equal public education services. AFC works on behalf of children from infancy to age 21 who are at greatest risk for school-based discrimination and/or academic failure. These include children with disabilities, ethnic minorities, immigrants, homeless children, foster care children, limited English proficient children and those living in poverty. AFC provides a full range of services: free individual case advocacy, technical assistance, and training for parents, students, and professionals about children's educational entitlements and due process rights in New York City.
AFC's outreach educates and empowers its clients to challenge unfair and exclusionary school-based systems, policies and practices. AFC's work on institutional reform aims to engage key public policy making entities in strategies to modify existing educational legal structures, procedures and regulations which negatively impact on young people's academic success. AFC's efforts are strengthened by ongoing policy analysis focused on the institutionalization of inclusionary, effective, and equitable school practices.
