Over 165 years of caring.

Welcome to the Children's Home of Poughkeepsie 

Established in 1847, the Children's Home provides a range of services and programs giving hope and healing to abused and neglected children in the Hudson River Region.  The Children's Home served 293 children and their family members last year. The Home provides a full range of residential services including campus-based care, community-based group homes and boarding homes, and independent living apartments.  It also provides regular foster care and intensive therapeutic foster homes. 

Throughout our 167 year history, the underlying mission of the Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie has remained the same:  The Home is dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment that improves lives and empowers at-risk children and families in the Hudson Valley and surrounding communities.
