Mission Statement

To empower underserved children and families to live healthy, independent, and fulfilling lives.

Description

The New York Foundling is one of New York City’s oldest and largest nonprofits serving disadvantaged children and families. Established in 1869, our vision is a community where every person, regardless of background or circumstance, enjoys the safe, stable, and supportive relationships needed to reach his or her full potential. To achieve this, we provide evidence-based programs that focus on keeping families together; preventing abuse and neglect; providing academic support for children; and giving people with developmental disabilities the tools and training they need to lead independent lives.

The Foundling reaches 27,000 children and families each year in all five boroughs of New York City, surrounding counties, and Puerto Rico. Established in 1869 by four Sisters of Charity, The New York Foundling has evolved from a home for abandoned babies, to a comprehensive and integrated network of support services designed to empower disadvantaged children and families.
