The Astor mission is to provide behavioral and educational services in a caring environment where children and their families find strength, healing, hope, and trust. Astor serves thousands of children each year, not including family members, and the need keeps growing. Through their core values, respect, hope, quality, partnership, and integrity Astor is committed to providing high-quality treatment and child development services for youngsters and their families in the least restrictive setting and at the earliest possible point of intervention. Astor operates a wide range of community-based and residential behavioral health treatment programs as well as early childhood development and parenting programs at multiple locations throughout our service region.
Astor is dedicated to helping children meet life's challenges, pursue their dreams, and reach their full potential.
As a way of saying "thank you" to the many Astor services employees who reside in our community, Marist College is offering special tuition pricing for all employees and their immediate adult family members.
