Dear Friends:

The Children’s Aid Society launched more than 160 years ago with a singular mission: to relieve the abject poverty that gripped orphaned children in New York City. Back then, the city’s social services were severely lacking, and most of society accepted widespread indigence as a simple fact of life.
