The Foundation fulfills this purpose by generating support for the services provided by Astor Services for Children & Families and The Astor Learning Center.

The Children’s Foundation of Astor —(formerly The Astor Home for Children Foundation) — is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that receives, invests, and administers private support for Astor Services for Children & Families and the Astor Learning Center.

Our Work

Flamingo tile from a mural in the Astor HomeEstablished in 1990, the Foundation is committed to securing funding for, and communicating the work of Astor Services for Children & Families, and The Astor Learning Center. We work to help Astor achieve its mission of providing high quality treatment and child development services for children and their families.

Each year, thousands of children and their families participate in Astor’s programs — which range from early childcare to residential treatment, and community-based behavioral health — at over 25 sites in the Hudson Valley and New York City. Astor’s programs aim to prevent and treat emotional disturbance and facilitate healthy development. Astor’s staff value the inherent dignity of each child and provide compassionate and competent care as they work to help children find peace in what is often a very troubled life.
