Founded in 1837, Hillside is one of the oldest family and youth non-profit human services organizations in the United States. We provide child welfare, mental and physical health, youth development, juvenile justice, special education and developmental disabilities services across central and western New York, and in Prince George’s County, MD. Hillside serves approximately 13,000 youth and adults each year.
Addressing complex issues requires a systemic approach that coordinates a wide range of mutually reinforcing efforts. Our diverse programs and staff work individually and collectively to help children, youth and families find their pathways to success and break the damaging cycles of poverty, trauma and neglect.
Hillside is committed to providing health, education and human services to all that need it, and working with the people of our communities to solve the most challenging social problems. As an agency, we have grown and evolved to meet the changing needs of our communities.
