Why Your Gift Matters

Children’s Bureau provides dozens of comprehensive and compassionate programs for children and their families through 13 sites in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. These programs help to ensure stable relationships, physical and emotional health, and economic security. They include:

  • Family Enrichment Programs recognize that parents are their child’s first teacher and help equip them for this important job through parent education and support – preventing abuse and neglect from ever occurring.
  • Family Resource Centers are safe community-based hubs where families can get support, education, and resources to increase their parenting skills and strengthen family functioning.
  • Foster Care & Adoption Services help place children in the homes they want and deserve.

In the last year, Children’s Bureau served nearly 50,000 children and parents who are facing serious stressors like financial strain, housing insecurity, and mental health struggles to help break the cycle of child maltreatment. Your gift makes this possible.

Thank you for your support!
