For 150 years, HeartShare St. Vincent's Services (HSVS) has worked to equalize opportunities for those who need it most.
The agency was founded in 1869 as a home for young working boys—many of whom had no family or had families too poor to care for them. Since then, we have continued to expand our services (and footprint) to meet the evolving needs of children and families within NYC.
Today, we are 450 staff members strong, serving over 6,000 New Yorkers each year. Operating across every borough of the city, we provide a comprehensive and holistic set of programming for both children and family dealing with a range of trauma related to family separation.

Our acclaimed American Dream Program (ADP) is within this Division. As a privately funded program, ADP provides education and emotional support, as well as career advancement programming to empower older youth to overcome their personal challenges and to excel as adults. The program helps them find their own paths, make plans and develop the skills to take on the challenges of careers, education, finances and adult responsibilities with energy and confidence.
