Every child deserves a chance at happiness. Many children are burdened with medical issues and face daily obstacles that may seem insurmountable. At Charity for Children, a local not-for-profit organization, our mission is to provide service to children with diseases, disabilities and/or disorders in Central New York and their families. Charity for Children is a “Child” specific organization rather than a disease specific organization allowing us to fill in where other organizations leave off and leave no family without assistance regardless of the diagnosis.


Our efforts focus on providing services directly for children, as well as assistance to families who often struggle to overcome the many associated challenges. These services are mostly financial, but also include advocacy, intervention and referrals. Working in conjunction with other organizations, Charity for Children strives to fulfill most, if not all, of our children’s needs. First, last and always, we are advocates for children.

Charity for Children is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to assisting children with medical needs and their families during their most critical times.  So many of our children are chronically ill so they become part of the Charity Children receiving assistance month after month and year after year.


All of our income comes from our fund-raising efforts and private donations.  We do not receive any federal or state funding which means that we rely solely on the generosity of our community members and local businesses. For more information regarding our mission, please contact Nina Albino-DeVoldre, Executive Director at 315-436-4822
