Vanderheyden Plans Celebration Of 185th Anniversary



In 2018, Vanderheyden will commemorate 185 years of providing services to thousands of youth, individuals and families.

Our primary mission is: to empower youth, adults, and families to build brighter futures.

Most of the individuals have had more challenges and trauma in their lives than you can imagine. Everyone deserves a second chance to overcome adversity and become an independent, contributing member of society.

To commemorate our 185 years and reflect on Vanderheyden's rich history beginning with the success of the Troy Orphan Asylum in Troy, New York, we are inviting 185 individuals to kick-off our celebration by becoming a member of the "1833 Society" with a donation of $1,833, to honor the year our organization was formed.

Our hope is that you will join in as someone that makes a future impact in the Vanderheyden legacy to change lives to save lives.

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." - Helen Keller.
