Thank you for for providing a safe place, with comprehensive care, for children and teens affected by abuse, neglect, behavioral health issues, and trauma.

My family and I have donated to this organization for many years. My heart is warmed when I read the reviews from those who were "rescued" by this facility. It really is a critical need in our communi...ty, and I fully support and admire the work that the Children's Receiving Home of Sacramento does. See More

My little brother and I lived here around 2001, my little brother almost 8 in acorns 1 and I was 10 years old in willows 1, I hope the some of the staff has changed since then, one woman at night in dorm seemed as if she didn't like black people. Not only did she always get on fights with a couple black girls in my dorm, she had me take out short cornrow braids I had gotten done she told me, "you need to take this out, your not black, black people have to wash their hair every other day, you need to wash your hair everyday" and made me take them out myself as I cried. and I hope that siblings can visit each other (or at least talk to each other) regardless if they are different genders... Our dorm was deprived of seeing fireworks cause they were past our bedtime so we just watched they flashes in out window as we laid in bed hearing the people outside enjoying them.... the social workers lied to me multiple times, the foster mom was never around, said I couldn't dye eggs on Easter cause of "snitching," when I got head lice the foster mom said " what am I supposed to do? I ain't white!!!" so I went into the room, I shared with at 16 year old girl that watched r rated music videos, and picked out some of the lice myself, and nobody ever checked in on us I guess they eventually realized and the day b4 the last day of school our social workers picked us up and said we were "just going for a ride," I said "I know we are going back to the receiving home but can I at least go to the last days celebration party we had been planning," they both promised me... The next day I waited in the office of the receiving home ALL DAY but they never came to get me..... This place, the social workers and especially the foster home I was in really took a toll on us more than my family ever has....... See More

Love compassion and hope. Every child needs all three to grow to a successful, confident adult.

Without Children's Receiving Home, our community would not have a safe place for children in crisis who have no place else to turn.
