Harlem Children's Zone, Inc (HCZ) is a multi-site, multi-program community organization that provides a unique and comprehensive interlocking network of education, social and health services, and recreation to more than 21,000 children and adults in Central Harlem. Its goal is to create a "tipping point" in the neighborhood so that children are surrounded by an enriching environment of college-oriented peers and supportive adults. HCZ is nationally and internationally recognized for its early and progressive intervention programs, and has been called "one of the most ambitious social-policy experiments of our time" by The New York Times.
