Housing and Homeless Services
Homelessness, one of the problems that spurred Children's Aid Founder Charles Loring Brace to action in 1853, continues to plague contemporary society. Today, nearly 40 percent of homeless individuals in New York City are children. Children’s Aid believes that each child is entitled to a safe place he or she can call home.
- Through the Carmel Hill Project, Children’s Aid serves families residing in three renovated apartment buildings on West 118th Street.
- Children’s Aid’s Pelham Fritz Apartments provide Tier II shelter for homeless families.
- The Children’s Aid Society’s Office of Public Policy and Client Advocacy helps families to resolve housing issues by providing legal and financial assistance when needed.
