Since 1867, the Sacramento Children’s Home has been committed to providing high quality care to the Sacramento region’s most vulnerable children and families. Our 155+ year history has positioned our agency at the forefront of caring for at-risk youth and helping to build strong families throughout our community, and today, we are one of the preeminent providers of children and family services in the region. From providing short term residential care to foster youth who have suffered trauma to providing crisis support for families with infants and toddlers, SCH focuses on child abuse prevention, intervention, and mental health treatment for our area’s most at-risk children and families. Our programs promote child safety, positive parenting, education, and mental health, and improve the healthy functioning of families. Through our portfolio of programs, we provide services to approximately 6,000 clients including 3,000+ children and 3,000+ families each year. At over 155+ years old, the Sacramento Children’s Home is the oldest and one of the most highly respected nonprofits in Sacramento and makes a significant difference in the lives of our community’s most vulnerable children and families.


The mission of the Sacramento Children's Home is to open doors to the future by maximizing the potential of children and families.


The Sacramento Children’s Home is once again joining more than 700 local nonprofits and participating in Sacramento’s biggest 24-hour fundraising event, and this year, we have a goal of $150,000 to support the pressing needs of the children and families we serve.

Today is important for us because all funds raised today will support our three highest needs programs which are our Crisis Nursery, three Family Resource Centers, and Residential Treatment Program. These programs promote child safety, positive parenting, education, and mental health, and improve the healthy functioning of families. These services are crucial for local at-risk children and families, and we need your help to sustain them so they can continue to serve as an essential resource for the community.

Now, more than ever, we need support from community members like you to continue providing services like emergency childcare for toddlers, free parenting classes for local families, counseling services for children, and parents other critical services. So, will you help support us today and help us reach our goal of raising $150,000?

It’s quite the goal, and we can’t get there without your help. If you believe in preventing child abuse, keeping kids safe, and strengthening families, we encourage you to make a donation to support the Sacramento Children’s Home.


The Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery protects our community’s most vulnerable children by offering a safe, supportive environment during times of crisis. With two locations in North and South Sacramento, the Crisis Nursery Program provides free, emergency childcare and overnight care for children from birth to age five, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The Crisis Nursery also provides case management services to parents and caregivers, helping them work through very difficult times in their lives. When families are facing stressful situations alone with no support, the incidence of family violence increases. By offering a safe alternative for children and supportive services to parents, the Crisis Nursery effectively reduces and/or prevents child abuse and neglect and decreases family violence.


The Sacramento Children’s Home operates three Family Resource Centers (FRCs). The FRCs help build strong families through education, intervention and social support. Located in three of Sacramento’s most diverse communities – North Sacramento, Meadowview and Valley Hi, our Family Resources Centers offer a wide array of services that open doors to new opportunities for Sacramento’s most at-risk children and families. With a “no wrong door” policy, our Family Resource Centers help maximize potential in all families we serve and never turn away a family in need. Some of the services offered within our FRCs include but are not limited to evidence-based classes for the health and wellbeing of children and families, domestic violence education/counseling, crisis intervention, play care, parent leadership, transportation, housing guidance, family and community events and so much more!


As a Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Program (STRTP) the Residential Program provides intensive care for abused or neglected males aged 6-19 and prepares them to thrive in a home setting. This program fills an invaluable and necessary niche in our community by ensuring that all abused and neglected children have a safe, caring and supportive living environment where they can develop the social skills, anger management skills and life skills necessary to live full, healthy and productive lives.
