Immediate Needs for Children & Families

We value your time, talent, and treasures! There are so many ways you can get involved or donate to meet the needs of at-risk children and families in our care. We need your financial giving, but we also rely on donations of home supplies, food, clothing, and other essentials to help support our mission to prevent child abuse and transform lives. See below for current needs in each of our regions across California, Nevada and the Pacific Northwest.

Immediate Needs

From diapers to blankets, we are always in need of items to help our children and families. We understand that our donors have different capacities for giving and are grateful for any items you can spare. Your donation will make a difference by providing timely and tangible needs for the children and youth we serve.

For the protection of our youth, only new items can be accepted unless otherwise indicated.
