Children's Aid and Family Services

Children's Aid and Family Services was founded in 1899 with a focus on child protection and adoption. While helping children and families is still a core part of our mission, the agency has evolved to meet ever-changing social needs. Our programs include: Community residences, specialized services and day programming for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities; therapeutic foster care for children and teens who have suffered from trauma; free nutritional formula and diapers for low-income families; outpatient counseling services to children ages 4 - 17 and their families; free housing, safety-net services and mentoring for young mothers and their children in order to promote economic and educational mobility; community and school-based substance misuse prevention and education programs and peer recovery support services.
