In full partnership with families and communities, Graham Windham strives to make a life-altering difference with children, youth and families affected by abuse, neglect and delinquency by providing each child we serve with a strong foundation for life: a safe, loving, permanent family and the opportunity and preparation to thrive in school and in the world.
What We Do
Eliza Hamilton established Graham Windham as the first private orphanage in New York City in honor of her husband, Alexander Hamilton. 211 years later, Graham Windham's mission to support kids and families lives on. Today, Graham serves more than 4,500 kids and their families. Most of these kids have had a tough start in life. But through their own strength and Graham's support -- whether through family counseling and treatment, or after school academic help, these kids can thrive into adulthood. Eliza's dream was to give every kid to get their shot -- that mission lives on today. #ElizasStory
