Right here in Orange County there are over 2,200 children in the child welfare system. With your help we are fearlessly working to ensure each vulnerable child is safe in a loving family.

Our focus is on preventing abuse, stopping the cycle, and transforming lives. We stay the course by focusing on One Life at a Time®, and address each individual’s unique needs with care and compassion.

With your help, we can make beautiful transformation stories a reality every day. Thank you.
