Astor Home For Children

Tel: (845)871-1032
The Astor Home for Children is a community based, non-profit organization that provides children's mental health services, child welfare services, and early childhood development programs.
Astor serves children and families in New York State's Mid-Hudson Valley region and the Bronx.
Through a wide variety of premier quality education and mental health services, Astor provides support for pre-schoolers, children with behavioral and emotional health problems, children at risk of placement in foster care, and families that need assistance in developing the skills necessary to raise their children in an environment filled with increasing challenges.
Astor currently serves over 6,000 children each year through its prevention, early childhood, special education, community behavioral health and residential treatment programs.
Many children in our communities struggle with emotional and psychological problems that make it difficult for them to experience the simple everyday pleasures of being a child.
