About US

Every child deserves a chance

We are committed to our mission to provide all our children with the roots and wings they need to grow.

Founded in 1846 as the Society for the Relief of Destitute Children of Seamen, Seamen’s Society for Children and Families has provided innovative and effective solutions that enable children to survive and thrive. It was one of the first organizations in the country to care for abused and abandoned children in foster homes rather than in institutions.
