Cardinal Hayes Home for Children began in 1941 when Cardinal Spellman, the Archbishop of New York, asked the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary to move and expand their convalescent-care center for children. They moved from rural Palenville, New York, to Millbrook in suburban Westchester County.

It began as a convalescent home for children discharged from hospitals who could not be cared for adequately in their homes. Now it serves as a residential care and treatment program for young people with developmental disabilities. It also offers a day school for students with multiple challenges.
