“My mom, who has unbelievable courage and power, constantly pushes me beyond mediocrity. She always asks, ‘If you don’t have an education, who will hire you?’ My mother has been a wonderful part of my life. Without her, I’d be broken.” – Felicia is a temporary resident at the New York Foundling Crisis Nursery.
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.
