Can you tell me about your mission? 

Little Flower Children and Family Services of New York transforms caring into action to deliver services, programs, and direction to improve the lives of children in crisis, families, and adults with developmental disabilities. Since 1930, Little Flower has helped those with developmental disabilities in New York City and Long Island. Our staff of over 500 essential workers build well-being by providing foster boarding home care, residential treatment care, adoption services, programs and services for individuals with developmental disabilities, and medical and mental health services and coordination. 

What programs do you offer?

Our Family Foster Care program serves more than 400 children and families in New York City and Long Island. The Heath and Wellness coordination is offered to more than 450 children, and our residential programs serve over 100 children and 300 adults in Queens and Long Island. Family Care and Day Hab is available for hundreds of individuals with developmental disabilities. We have strategically partnered with St. John’s Residence For Boys to amplify the impact of our programs and services to empower even more children and families. 

How does your work maintain stability in the lives of those you serve?

Every day Little Flower strives to fulfill its mission to serve children and families weathering life storms and adults with developmental disabilities in need. We are proud to have helped so many find safety and stability throughout the unprecedented nature of the last few years. Our medical and mental health teams never missed a beat ensuring our children and families remained connected to the vital service they need through telehealth. When the pandemic forced us to make changes, our direct support professionals found new and creative ways to keep our foster residents engaged.
