Donate To Support Local Children in Los Angeles & Orange Counties | Children's Bureau of Southern California

Welcome to BUILD HOPE


We invite you to help ensure that every child in the Children’s Bureau family is resilient in the face of adversity. There are many obstacles to success for vulnerable children in our community—poverty, maltreatment, neglect, inadequate education, food and housing insecurity, substance abuse, violent environments, and limited access to resources and supportive networks. We believe that helping children thrive in strong families and communities is a public concern.

Your donation will help ensure children can thrive, free from abuse and neglect.

Your Gift Matters

Child well-being can only be accomplished with strong families and communities. With 84% of funding going directly toward our programs, your support truly empowers those at risk to overcome challenges and create positive, generational changes that benefit children, families, and entire communities.

We serve nearly 50,000 children and parents annually in Los Angeles and Orange Counties with the support of donors like you.

So please donate generously online or see other ways to give below!
