Volunteer Opportunities for Individuals


Thank you for your interest in volunteering at The New York Foundling.  To follow are current opportunities for individuals. Please note that those wishing to volunteer must have a current email address and be able to send and receive email. All opportunities which involve regular, direct contact with our children and families require a thorough application process, background check and medical examination. With limited exception, the opportunities below require a regular weekly commitment of at least one (1) two (2) hour shift.


 For those wishing to help in other ways, we are always in need of in-kind and monetary donations and gift cards.

Another way to help! Having a baby? Congratulations! It’s exciting and fun to celebrate the birth of a baby with a baby shower but some moms having their second and third children feel that they do not need more supplies, clothing or gear. A great solution is to ask guests to bring new baby items for one of the babies in The Foundling’s care instead! This way, you can celebrate your new little one with family and friends, while helping children in need.
