About Us

New York City Administration for Children’s Services (“ACS”) works with families and communities, in their neighborhoods, to help protect and support children and youth through child welfare, juvenile justice, and early care services. As a child and family serving agency with a wide continuum of services, ACS is uniquely positioned to help create a stable, more equitable foundation of opportunity for those we serve.


In child welfare, we, along with our community-based partners, support children and families with services that help make families strong, and also provide foster care for children who cannot remain safely at home. Our Child Protection Specialists conduct over 55,000 investigations each year and help link families to services and support in their communities. We also manage the city’s juvenile detention and placement services, along with alternative programs that are responsive to the needs of youth and families, while ensuring public safety. Additionally, ACS oversees one of the largest, subsidized child care systems in the country with over 100,000 children in various child care programs, including EarlyLearn NYC.
