The Children's Defense Fund is an organization deeply committed to our Leave No Child Behind mission and to ensure that every child has a Healthy Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start and a Moral Start in life and successful passage into adulthood with caring families and communities. For 40 years, CDF has combined advocacy, public education, policy development, leadership training and other efforts to protect children and encourage preventive investment in children before they get sick, drop out of school, suffer family breakdown, or get into trouble.
CDF Freedom Schools programs are partnerships between CDF's Black Community Crusade for Children® (BCCC)® program and local community-based organizations, churches, public schools and colleges/universities to provide literacy-rich summer programs in communities where those opportunities are limited or nonexistent.
