The Newport Family & Child Opportunity Zone (NFCOZ) serves Newport children from birth to grade four and their families. The NFCOZ is located on site at the Pell Elementary School to provide wrap around supports and services and promote school success. The NFCOZ offers after school programs, licensed on-site before and after school childcare, and school vacation camps; parent support and education; family involvement activities; health and wellness activities; and connection to community resources.
The mission of the NFCOZ in partnership with schools, families and the community is to support children and their families to thrive through the delivery of comprehensive and integrated education, health, and social services.
Rhode Island’s Child Opportunity Zones (COZs) are a full service community school model of school-linked family centers that bring schools, families and communities together to promote success in school for all children and youth. COZs are welcoming places in or near schools where families can access education, health and social service programs, supports and referrals to address barriers to student achievement at the highest levels. Each COZ bases its coordinated system of services, programs and supports on the individual needs and resources of its schools, families and community.
