This exclusive event provides insight on The Foundling’s work in child welfare – including the drastic reduction of young people in foster care as a result of preventive programs, how the pandemic has impacted the children and families we serve, and how our programs look today.

Through intimate conversations with leaders, staff, and Foundling participants, our Fireside Chat highlights the obstacles and challenges New York City’s families currently face, the importance of our work, and the innovation and dedication that our Foundling heroes have demonstrated through these unprecedented times.

The Fireside Chat will stream online on Wednesday, October 21 from 6:30 – 7:30 PM EST. Registered participants will receive the access link via email, prior to the event.
