Ringing in the New Year, We’re Turning 149!

Since 1869, The New York Foundling has been a beacon of hope for New Yorkers in need. We have touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of children, youth, adults, and families across New York’s five boroughs, its surrounding counties, and Puerto Rico through our work in child welfare, education, behavioral health, juvenile justice, and developmental disabilities.


As we approach our 150th anniversary in 2019, we’re planning many ways to recognize the large role our community of friends and supporters — both past and present — has played in building this legacy.


We’re looking to reconnect with the people of our past and present to honor The Foundling’s 150 years serving the community.


If you’re interested in participating in our anniversary celebrations in 2019, or sharing your story of how The Foundling has impacted you, please email us at communications@nyfoundling.org to join our mailing list.
