NYFC has more than 20 years of experience working directly with transition-aged youth, ACS, and the city’s private foster care agencies in serving this population. Since its inception, NYFC has distributed more than $55 million to support youth in foster care, including $5 million in scholarship funds to promote post-secondary education for youth aging out of care.
As the nonprofit partner to the Administration for Children’s Services, NEW YORKERS FOR CHILDREN protects, ensures, and promotes the safety and well-being of NYC’s children and families, with an emphasis on youth in foster care.

WHAT THE YOUTH WE SERVE ARE SAYING
Receiving my Back-to-School Package was a very special feeling, like someone really cared about me, and my educational goals. The program gives me the motivation to strive towards greater academic achievement!”
Back-To-School Package Recipient
As far as my academics, you play a big role. I know that I’m not alone because if there’s anything you can do, even if it’s not related to school — like housing or personal issues — I know that NYFC will help me. I just want to say thank you because before you came into my life, I didn’t know how I was going to afford college and buy my books.
I am incredibly grateful to NYFC for restoring my hope and putting me on a path to success. I’m looking forward to graduating next semester!
