Each year, our community-based programs and residences meet the needs of more than 15,000 diverse youngsters and family members. These children are often society’s most vulnerable, victims of trauma, violence or shattered family lives.
We ensure their emotional, social, educational and physical well- being from birth to age 26 through a dedicated team of professionals and a wide range of critical services. As a result, disadvantaged kids have safe surroundings, loving relationships and a secure path toward tomorrow.
To help children and their families build permanent, positive change.
As the oldest child welfare agency in America, we have maintained our
commitment to children for more than 200 years. Because every child deserves
happiness, and no child should go through life alone.
