The Children's Home

Our Mission: We partner with children, families and communities to inspire hope, develop skills and cultivate healthy relationships for positive futures. 


Our Vision: We envision a collaborative, caring community where children and families lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives. 

As a multi-service child welfare agency, we are dedicated to the safety, permanency, and well being of children, their families and the community.  What was once a typical orphanage has grown to one of the most well respected and outstanding child care institutions in New York State.


We continue to be a living organization where care still remains flexible and responsive to programs and changing views of care.  Changes become necessary according to economic conditions and services needed.  Care is given to children and families as well as coordination with schools and related community programs.  We offer four areas of assistance: Residential, Educational, Preventive and Therapeutic Care. Read more about our programs on our Programs page.


Our employees and foster families are trained and dedicated to providing quality services to vulnerable children. 


At the Children's Home we believe that every child deserves a safe place, and a life worth living.
