When you join The Home for Little Wanderers, you join a team of professionals dedicated to creating better, brighter futures for kids.

For over 200 years, The Home for Little Wanderers has helped build stable lives and hopeful tomorrows for vulnerable children and their families. Our 25+ community-based and residential programs serve thousands of at-risk youths from birth to age 26. Many of these children have experienced abuse, neglect, trauma, or a disrupted family life. As the oldest child welfare agency in America, we provide them with safe surroundings, permanent loving relationships, and a secure path toward a better, brighter future.

The mission of The Preschool Outreach Center (part of The Home's Center for Early Childhood) is to ensure that all children have a strong start in life, and social-emotional wellness is the linchpin of healthy development. Through a variety of direct care services and training programs, The Center works with children, their caregivers and educators to help build and support strong social-emotional foundations when early connections are so critical, so that children are able to build relationships, learn and thrive.
