The Home for Little Wanderers
For over 200 years, The Home for Little Wanderers has helped build stable lives and hopeful tomorrows for children who are abused, neglected or in at-risk circumstances.
Our 30+ community-based and residential programs serve thousands of children and their families across the Northeast. Many of these youth are forgotten or overlooked by society and have experienced trauma, violence or shattered family lives. At The Home, we ensure their emotional, social, educational and physical well-being through a wide range of critical services.
The Home’s mission is to help children and their families build permanent, positive change through innovative programs including adoption and foster care, behavioral health and clinical services, residential care, special education schools and young adult programs. From birth to age 26, The Home helps children at every age and stage of life, bringing stability, support, and above all, hope, into the lives of those who need us most.
Help us continue to give the children at The Home what they need! As a member of our running team, the funds you raise will directly support The Home’s essential programs that work to give every child loving, lasting connections, because no child should have to go through life alone.
