New Directions Youth and Family Services

New Directions helps Western New York youth and families in crisis with vital, life-changing services.


We help youth and families to not just survive - but thrive!


We provide preventive & community-based programs, educational services, residential campuses, group homes, traditional & therapeutic foster care and adoption.


Our life-changing treatment plans establish an effective therapeutic relationship, capitalize on strengths, build character, and provide the necessary skills for adulthood.


Our dedicated staff members help more than 1,000 children every year – many of whom have been subjected to abuse and neglect.



We've come a long way over the last 135 years since our origins as the Wyndham Lawn Home for Children in Lockport, New York and the Randolph Children's Home in Randolph, New York.



The New Directions Foundation is committed to the long-term sustainability of these vital services.  The Foundation also covers program funding gaps and helps ensure that our residences feel like homes - not institutions.
