About HFY

In 1969, Judge Elizabeth Bass Golding of the Nassau County Family Court founded Hope For Youth to create a group home program for adolescent boys. Judge Golding envisioned a community based alternative for emotionally disturbed Nassau County youth placed in residential treatment centers, but capable of living in the community with appropriate supports. Hope For Youth opened its first boy’s group home in Bellmore in 1970 and subsequently received local, state and national recognition for demonstrating the viability of the group home model for youth.

Today, Hope For Youth operates an array of services for children, youth and families, which span a continuum of care from out-patient clinical and preventive services to foster care, diagnostic and emergency services and other residential programs including our original therapeutic group home program. We serve children as young as six months of age through age twenty-one and families from across the Long Island region.   

With seven residential facilities, over fifty foster homes, and 130 staff, Hope For Youth has grown into one of Long Island’s pre-eminent providers of children and family services. We have contractual relationships and accept referrals from the:
