The New York Foundling (the "Foundling") is one of the oldest, largest and most well-respected human services agencies in New York.  Established as a home for abandoned children, the Foundling has been saving children, preserving families, and building communities since 1869. The Foundling's focus is on child welfare and the developmentally disabled and creating a community where each child, youth and adult enjoys the safe, stable and support relationships needed to reach his or her full physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual potential.
Enjoying the outdoors. Meeting new friends. Learning new skills. For many kids in the child welfare system, being a carefree kid is a luxury they don’t get to experience nearly enough. Camp Felix Summer Camp is changing that. Started in partnership with Darryl “DMC” McDaniels from “Run D-M-C,” and Sheila Jaffe, one of the movie industry’s most well-known casting directors, Camp Felix provides 150-200 children in our care with a camping experience that, for many participants, changes their outlook on life altogether. The only overnight camp for children in the child welfare system, our campers immerse themselves in activities that instill feelings of self-confidence, resilience and community. Many campers leave carrying a new sense of hope with them, and the belief that despite their difficult circumstances, they can “do anything."
