The New York Foundling

The New York Foundling is one of the community’s largest and longest-standing nonprofits, and is dedicated to nurturing the safety, well-being, and supportive relationships that each person needs to reach their full potential. Our story begins in 1869, when we were founded by the Sisters of Charity as a home for abandoned babies. Since then, we have evolved with the needs of the community into a leading provider of services to over 30,000 children, youth, adults, and families each year throughout New York City; Rockland, Westchester, and Orange counties; and Puerto Rico.

 

The Foundling’s programs are focused on individuals and families at the intersection of multiple disadvantages, both economic and social, and address complex needs in a comprehensive, holistic, and person-centered way. Our work embodies a results-driven approach to our most central goal: to empower underserved children and families to live healthy, independent, and fulfilling lives.
