Steinway Family Services To Shut Doors After Tax Scandal

Steinway Child and Family Services, which provides services to children with severe mental health issues, is $10 million in the hole, according to records released on February 1. The Astoria-based non-profit is closing after it owes more than $7 million in unpaid federal and state payroll taxes. It will shut down on February 28.

According to staff members, some have not been paid in weeks.

According to the organization’s latest tax filings Steinway Child and Family Services Director Mary Redd, earned $192,385 in salary in 2013.

The organization provides mental health, social and residential services to children in need, as stipulated on the group’s website. Many of the 3,500 children who benefited from the organization’s 17 programs were in foster care.

The state has contracted with new providers to ensure the continuity of care, said state Office of Mental Health spokesman Ben Rosen.
