BENEFITING: The New York Foundling
89 cents of every dollar goes DIRECTLY toward empowering the children and families the Foundling serves-- one of the best ratios of revenue to program expenses in the industry!!
This is just one of the many reasons I feel strongly about what the Foundling does.
We believe that all children have the right to grow up in loving and healthy environments that provide the foundations for success.
We believe that parents who want to care for and protect their children can be helped and, with the proper tools, can succeed.
We believe that all individuals with developmental disabilities deserve to live their lives with dignity.
We believe the devastating effects of poverty, substance abuse, violence and lack of opportunity – particularly on children and families – can be combated through the use of proven, effective support services.
We serve over 27,000 children and families each year in all five boroughs of New York City and surrounding counties, and Puerto Rico.
