BROOKLYN - A Park Slope after-school program serving low-income families is fighting to remain open.
The Imani House program at P.S./M.S. 282 serves about 150 kids and nearly all costs are covered by the city. However, organizers say its funding was cut twice in the last two years because it's located in an affluent neighborhood.
Executive Director Bisi Iderabdullah says that although the "open zone" school sits on 6th Avenue, its students come from all over. Iderabdullah says the program has to apply for another grant next year and has already started fundraising.
