Building Strong Communities One Family at a Time

The Coalition for Hispanic Family Services, established in 1990, provides services to Latino children and families and other populations in communities where significant numbers of families live below the poverty level. CHFS's programs address family needs comprehensively and within a cultural context, with the goal of moving them towards self-reliance. CHFS operates foster care and adoption services, child abuse prevention programs, outpatient and residential mental health programs, arts and after school education programs for children and adults, and parenting support programs. Coalition for Hispanic Family Services is New York City's only Latino foster care and family services agency.


Serving over 7000 children and families each year, the Coalition for Hispanic Family Services is building strong family at a time.

"REPRESENT"!!! That's what CHFS staff, community residents, families and friends did on Williamsburg/Bushwick CommUNITY Parade, resulting in a tremendous success. The streets of Bushwick were filled with hope and commitment to our community's children and families. We are so proud to have been able to march with, and be a part of, such a wonderful community. We are BUSHWICK STRONG!
