We work & serve communities in NY & Puerto Rico
A Modern Mission
Even after nearly 150 years, The New York Foundling has managed to modernize its meaningful work and firmly grounded mission. The organization and its team members work with a start-up mentality—making a big impact on social issues by actively using influential communication channels like its website, social media platforms, email marketing, and digital campaigning to spread awareness and improve results.
What The New York Foundling Does
The NY Foundling 101
Founded in 1869 as a safe haven for abandoned children, The New York Foundling has since established a legacy of excellence in rebuilding lives and supporting families. Today, the organization dedicatedly serves over 7000 at-risk and vulnerable children, youth, families, and adults by providing reliable preventive and intervention resources—from foster homes to life-skills to recreational and educational programs—that empower individuals and strengthen communities.
