Founded in Rhinebeck, NY in 1953, Astor Services for Children & Families has grown beyond simply the “home for children.” Today, with services available in the Hudson Valley and New York City, Astor provides high quality mental/behavioral health and education services for children and their families. Astor provides reasonable access to services without regard to race, religion, color, ethnicity, gender, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age, or disability; or ability to pay. The youth and family voice are essential perspectives in all of our programming.
Astor is committed to family-driven care. Parents and caregivers of children in Astor’s services are welcome to join our Advisory Board. Meeting monthly, members review and give input to agency policies and procedures, advocate and outreach for children’s mental health services in the community, and provide support and networking.
