Join us in celebrating our 175th Anniversary!
Founded in 1846 to care for the abandoned children of sailors from the Port of New York, Seamen’s Society was one of the first organizations in the country to offer a home-based, safe refuge for children. Over the past 175 years, we have evolved and expanded our services. Today, we care for more than 1,250 children and 500-plus families at any given time through a variety of programs.
However, the heart of our mission — the well-being of our community’s most vulnerable children — remains unchanged. In fact, it has been broadened to encompass the strengthening and preservation of entire families — ensuring children live in safe environments that provide the greatest opportunity for success and happiness.
On April 7, 2022, we will celebrate our mission and history of serving and caring for children and families.
As part of our 175th Anniversary Gala, we are delighted to honor:
