About The New York Foundling:

In 1869, two forward thinking Sisters of Charity rescued an abandoned baby left on the cold streets of New York City. This single brave act of kindness marked the beginning of what was to become The New York Foundling's steadfast and enduring commitment to respond to the critical needs of the City's most vulnerable children and families. In the century that followed, more than 100,000 babies and children passed through The Foundling into the homes of adoptive and foster families. 141 years later, The Foundling continues to build upon this legacy of saving children, preserving families and building communities.

Since its inception, The New York Foundling has continuously and conscientiously expanded its scope of services to meet the changing needs of the communities we serve.  While our name "Foundling", meaning "abandoned child", reflects our early work with abandoned children, The New York Foundling has evolved from these beginnings into one of New York City's oldest and largest social service agencies serving some of New York's neediest children and families. The Foundling is today a vast regional network touching the lives of more than 13,000 people annually.

The New York Foundling protects children from abuse and neglect; helps teen mothers and overstressed parents meet the challenges of parenthood; provides after-school and summer programs for children from some of the most disadvantaged neighborhoods in New York; provides educationally enriched child care and preschool; helps developmentally disabled people achieve maximum independence; meets a variety of community needs in neighborhoods struggling with poverty, drugs, and violence; and, most recently, opened the country's only  charter school designed specifically for foster children.
