The Fiscal Health of Nonprofit Child and Youth Service Providers Before and After September 11

5/31/2005:   Many child and youth nonprofits are facing difficult challenges in today's economic climate. The tough issues facing child and youth nonprofits can largely be traced to the after effects of the terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Centers.

A brief from the Urban Institute addresses the financial position of community-based nonprofits of child and youth services before September 11, 2001, and describes the extent to which they were financially ready to absorb the environmental stressors that followed the events of September 11. The brief specifically focuses on locally oriented nonprofits serving children and youth in the Washington, DC, metro area.
