Empowering Lives, Enriching Individuals & Families

Empowering individuals and families experiencing homelessness to help them become independent and self-sufficient for future generations to come.

Opening in 1992, we joined the fight against homelessness, opening the Icahn House.
In 2004, we opened CRF House East.
We came up with the CRF Cluster Model Program in 2007.
And in 2020, we continue to expand with CRF Hotels.

“Thank you so much for everything! During such a stressful and difficult transition you managed to fulfill your duties to the best of your abilities with genuine intention. I admire your dedication to the field. Please continue to be a presence for others.”
He [a 46-year-old Hispanic father] reminded Ms. Knowles during intake she shared a quote “the worst part about being strong is that no one never asks if you’re ok” he presented social service staff with a plaque that stated the exact quote.
"To All Staff at Children’s Rescue Fund, From the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you for making my stay a pleasant one. Many do not know how powerful smiles, understanding and kind gestures are. This has been an extremely painful year for me, so I expected something much different upon my arrival. Again, I thank you all for making my stay and my daughter’s stay a pleasant one, which I know is not easy to do when working in social service."
