Family & Children’s is a not-for-profit agency helping nearly 20,000 of our neighbors each year. For more than 130 years, we have worked to protect and strengthen vulnerable children, seniors, families and communities on Long Island.

Through an integrated network of services and counseling, Family & Children’s provides help and hope to underserved and disadvantaged individuals struggling to build better lives. We Invest in Children by offering early childhood intervention, educational mentoring, youth development, college scholarships and psychological counseling. We Build Family Success through family crisis management, chemical and substance abuse programs, parenting skills training, vocational education, and foster care/court supervision prevention. We help Neighbors in Need by assisting veterans, senior citizens and runaway or homeless youth with their unique challenges. We Strengthen Communities by providing a continuum of care to all ages within one of Long Island's most at-risk villages. And, we Provide Shelter to the most vulnerable among us by housing runaway teens, homeless youth and homeless veterans.

Family & Children’s has been nationally recognized as a model of excellence, fiscally sound, well-managed and possessing an impeccable reputation in providing community-based social services. We embrace more than 200 individual volunteers, corporate groups, community groups and sponsors who join with us to be part of something bigger than them.

We encourage you to join our “community of caring” and transform a life, close to home. Download our agency brochure in English or Spanish.
