ENACT understands that children learn best when their social and emotional needs are met. Healthy student development is often hindered when a student has experienced neglect and trauma. ENACT has been a pioneer of trauma-informed practices and social, emotional learning since our inception in 1987 and has reached over 150,000 youth in New York City’s five boroughs.

ST. ELIZABETH SETON CHILDREN'S FOUNDATION

Coleman School and Children’s Rehabilitation Center. The Foundation reaches children and their families across this continuum of residential and community-based services, celebrating the uniqueness of each child.
Sometimes the most difficult events in our lives are the ones that generate the most meaning and a determination to make a difference. Sherrie and Michael Wells started the Hugs for Brady Foundation in 2009, shortly after their 13-month old son, Brady Michael, was diagnosed with Non-Differentiated Acute Leukemia, a very rare form of leukemia. In 2010, Brady passed away after he and his parents bravely battled the disease for ten months. His memory lives on in the work of the Hugs for Brady Foundation, which supports children battling cancer “one hug at a time” as well as applied research to ultimately find a cure.
