BACKGROUND INFORMATION


About The Children's Aid Society  (back to top)
The Children’s Aid Society has been serving children for more than 150 years, a testament to its adaptability to the ever-changing needs of young people. Today, Children’s Aid serves more than 70,000 children and their families at more than 45 sites throughout New York City. All aspects of a child’s development are addressed as he or she grows, from health care to academics to sports and the arts. Because stable children live in stable families, a host of services are available to parents, including housing assistance, domestic violence counseling and health care access.  Visit the CAS website.

About The New York Foundling
                                             (back to top)
In 1869, three Sisters of Charity opened their doors to save the lives of babies being abandoned on the streets of New York, beginning the tremendous legacy of the New York Foundling. Over the past 144 years, the Sisters’ ministry has continued evolving from a respite home for abandoned children, to a comprehensive spectrum of community support services designed to empower the vulnerable children and families of New York. While social situations and our approach to our mission have evolved, we continue to share our founders’ belief that no one should ever be abandoned, and that all children deserve the right to grow up in loving and stable environments.
