The mission of the Children's Defense Fund is to Leave No Child Behind and to ensure every child a Healthy Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start, and a Moral Start in life and successful passage to adulthood with the help of caring families and communities.

CDF provides a strong, effective voice for all the children of America who cannot vote, lobby, or speak for themselves. We pay particular attention to the needs of poor and minority children and those with disabilities. CDF educates the nation about the needs of children and encourages preventative investments before they get sick, into trouble, drop out of school, or suffer family breakdown.

In 1992, the Children's Defense Fund established an office in New York City, a city where 30% of children live in poverty and children account for 43% of the homeless population. We are recognized as an authority in the endeavor to protect children and strengthen families.

As soon as the student receives a letter of acceptance from the college, he/she should write or call the office of the coordinator of services for students with disabilities, identify him/herself, and describe the nature of the disability and the type of accommodations needed. Students should not wait until the semester begins, as the college needs advance notice to arrange for accommodations. Some students may require clarification of the terms "reasonable accommodations." Discussing the nature of accommodations with the coordinator for students with disabilities, at the onset, will ensure that services are coordinated.
