All About the Children

    In the 1800’s when the Female Guardian Society (Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie) was just beginning they took in homeless women along with children, but today it’s all about the children. We help children by providing a safe and nurturing environment that improves lives and empowers at-risk children in the Hudson Valley and surrounding communities.
