Abstract
Harlem Children’s Zone transformed itself dramatically starting in 1997, when it decided to focus on helping poor children in a 24-block area of Central Harlem. More recently, it has extended that area to 60 blocks. The approach is generating powerful results, but it hasn’t been without its stresses, both organizationally and financially.
