The Children's Receiving Home gives children their childhoods back. We provide youth in crisis - and their families - tools to prevail over the challenges preventing them from leading happy, healthy lives. For 80 years, CRH has been a beacon of hope for the Sacramento region and other communities in California; providing compassionate care for traumatized children and teens who have nowhere else to turn. Many of the kids who enter our doors have experienced abuse, neglect, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and other mental health challenges. In addition to providing shelter, meals, and therapeutic recreation in an emotionally warm, safe and nurturing environment, we are known for our expertise in intensive mental-health treatment for traumatized and vulnerable kids aged 2-19.

CRH also serves as a training ground for the region’s next generation of social workers, therapists and psychologists at a time when a nationwide shortage of mental health providers means long wait times for treatment, greater chances of hospitalization and increased strain on families.

The agency continues to challenge ourselves to meet the evolving needs of children, families, and the community through new additions to our services including:

- Suicide Prevention Services on-site and in the community 

- Trauma-Informed Care Preschool for the very youngest survivors of abuse 

- Partial Hospitalization program providing hospital diversion and post-hospitalization mental health care

- Clinically-trained therapists with a robust understanding of loss, attachment, trauma, and brain development.

Giving Activity


The Children's Receiving Home of Sacramento is committed to positively impacting the lives of children, youth, and families affected by abuse, neglect, behavioral health issues, and trauma in California.


Monetary or gift card donations allow us the most flexibility to ensure we are meeting all our youths' needs.

Many of the youth who come to us require high levels of care, and every child has vastly different therapeutic needs. "Greatest Need" funding allows us to nimbly meet the needs of every youth under our care.

We regularly utilize art supplies (e.g., canvas, acrylic paints, easels, brushes, etc.) since all four of our programs practice art therapy. As well, we always need gift cards to support youth outings, fulfill birthday wishes and meet specific therapeutic needs.
