Client Stories

Children’s Aid Society

Children’s Aid (CA) has served New York’s families, children and teens in high-need neighborhoods for nearly 170 years. Its innovative work as a “powerhouse of solutions” has made it one of the largest, most influential, and successful child welfare organizations in the country. Public acclaim for its work remains unabated. In 2017, Children’s Aid was recognized – twice – for its impact: the prestigious Robin Hood Heroes Award and a Nonprofit Excellence Award (Gold Medal) from New York Community Trust.
