Aug 22, 2012
  • Description

This series assesses the impact of economic conditions on afterschool programs. Based on 1,012 survey responses by afterschool providers, this report finds that afterschool programs are struggling to meet the needs of children and families in their communities, as they face shrinking resources and dismal prospects for new support. Hardest hit are programs serving disadvantaged communities -- the very population that has the most to gain from afterschool and summer programs.
