© Timothy Fadek Some of the children at Steinway have been legally removed from their families because of drug or alcohol abuse among the parents, domestic violence, child abuse, or a combination of all four problems.

Before coming to Steinway some of the children lived in foster homes and some were briefly hospitalizedin psychiatric wards because they were dangerously violent to themselves or others.

One such child at Steinway attempted suicide two years ago at the age 10, by deliberately running in front of a speeding truck.
