About New York City Mission Society



Founded in 1812, New York City Mission Society has been on the front lines of the war on poverty for more than two centuries, providing critically needed support for children, youth, and adults who live in New York City’s most under served communities.

During that time, the Mission Society incubated and launched some of the best-known and most innovative programs in the nonprofit sector today, such as the Fresh Air Fund, the Children’s Aid Society, the Community Service Society, and the Visiting Nurse Service. Today, we continue our work by delivering services that encourage critical thinking, self-confidence, and resilience in those we serve. Visit www.nycmissionsociety.org for more information.
