“The New York Foundling provides kids the opportunity to redeem their happiness and to gain an education from teachers and mentors who push us past mediocrity. Mrs. Moore, a New York Foundling English teacher, gave me the encouragement and power to learn more and be a better writer. Now, I love English and want to be a teacher because education is very important. We need to learn about powerful girls like Malala, who was shot because she insisted on going to school. To all the great, diverse females, we should be grateful that we don’t face challenges like Malala’s, but, it is still important we learn of her story.”
Each year, the New York Foundling serves over 27,000 children, youth and adults in need through efforts that strengthen families and communities and support each individual in reaching his or her potential. The organization’s Crisis Nursery, the only city-licensed emergency care facility of its kind, provides a safe and loving place for children to stay while parents respond to short-term crises that could otherwise turn into a disaster.
