Hillside Foundation

The Complex Work of Changing Lives

Since 1837, Hillside has served the evolving needs of a growing and complex community. We’re committed to providing pathways of support, healing and guidance that help vulnerable youth and families enjoy the happier, healthier futures they deserve.

Visionary philanthropy makes our work possible. Private donations support Hillside in ways that public funding sources simply can’t. Through the deep generosity of individuals, businesses and foundations, our agency can respond more quickly to areas of urgent need—and maintain the innovative spirit that has kept us at the forefront of human services delivery for nearly 200 years.

Hillside’s services improve individual lives, strengthen families and lift up whole communities. But we can’t do it alone. Thank you for your support.

“We have a responsibility to help children in our community who were born into circumstances that put them at a disadvantage. These are the kids who need our help the most.”
