Birch Friendship for Photography Program

Since its founding in 1975, Birch Family Services has grown from one small school into one of the largest networks of comprehensive programs serving New York children and families. Birch Family Services provides special schools, residences, and other services to individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities ranging in age from 3 to 72. Three out of four of the children we serve come from low income families.

Birch Family Services has changed the lives of so many people—more than 16,000 children and their families over the last 37 years.

Here are some wonderful photographs taken by some of the young adults:
