Cardinal Hayes Home for Children is a not-for-profit agency providing residential care and treatment for young people who are developmentally disabled.
CHHC is sponsored by the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary.
Children of all races, creeds and socio-economic backgrounds are equally considered for admission.
Our agency accepts ambulatory and non-ambulatory young people who function in the moderate to profound range of mental retardation.
The individuals in our care are multi-handicapped.
Some have a diagnosis of autism, others have cerebral palsy, epilepsy or neurological impairment.
Our nursing staff and direct care workers have considerable experience in the care of medically fragile children.
There are one hundred ten young people in our residential programs.
Cardinal Hayes School for Special Children provides special education programs for many of the children who reside at Cardinal Hayes Home.
Through contracts with public school districts, CHS also accepts special needs children who live at home with their families.
Chartered in 1984, the school is certified by the New York State Education Department.
The school is conveniently located in the Village of Millbrook.
