We serve thousands of people every year in all five boroughs of NYC, Rockland and Westchester counties, and in Puerto Rico, with programs geared towards:

• At-risk children and those in the Foster Care system
• Families struggling with instability
• Adults with developmental disabilities
• Youth involved in the juvenile justice system
• Infants and toddlers born into difficult circumstances
• Pre-Schoolers in Head Start programs

The New York Foundling is one of the oldest, largest and most impactful nonprofits serving children in New York City. "Like" us and help spread the word!

At The New York Foundling, we not only do what’s right, we do what works – and have for nearly 150 years. We are one of New York City’s oldest and largest children’s charities, and by combining data with compassion, evidence with action, we produce tangible results in the lives of thousands of vulnerable children and troubled youth every year. We believe that every child should have a home, every home should nurture families, and every family deserves joy, dignity and the chance to thrive.
