Biographical/Historical Note
This added material depicts a time when the organization underwent a great deal of change and expansion and emerged in 2000 as the Hillside Family of Agencies. This name was adopted to better represent the diversity of services provided by each affiliate. The affiliates are as follows:

Crestwood Children's Center: Originally founded in 1885 as Infants Summer Hospital, it changed its mission in 1958 to serving children with serious emotional behavioral or mental disorders. It supports the services through funds raised locally from individuals, corporations, foundations, and organizations.

Hillside Children's Center: Hillside Children's Center has been serving youth with emotional, behavioral or mental disorders for decades. Hillside Children's Foundation supports the mission of Hillside Children's Center and Hillside Work Scholarship Connection by raising program, capital, and endowments funds. Funds are raised through the support of individuals, corporations, foundations and community organizations. These funds provide services, equipment, and facilities to serve the growing number of children and families in need.

Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection: Founded by Wegman's Food Markets in 1987 and transferred to Hillside in 1996, Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection provides support to middle and high school students in Rochester and Syracuse at risk of dropping out of school.

Snell Farm Children's Foundation: Beginning operations in 1973 as Snell Farm, Snell Farm Children's Center provides specialized residential treatment for adolescent boys who have sexually abusive behavior.
