It is estimated that between four and seven children die each day from abuse and neglect in the United States. For over six decades, Childhelp has worked to combat this epidemic. Benefitting Childhelp’s California programs and services, Childhelp Orange County has been strengthening families and bringing together a community to support victims of child abuse since 1970.
Founded by Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson in 1959, Childhelp has brought the light of hope and healing into the lives of countless children as a leading national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping at-risk children. Childhelp’s programs and services include residential treatment services, children’s advocacy centers, therapeutic foster care, adoption services, group homes and child abuse prevention, education and training.
For each dollar expended, 85 cents are invested into serving the children in need of these program services.
Childhelp’s 1-800-4-A-CHILD National Abuse Hotline is dedicated to the prevention of child abuse. Serving the US and Canada and staffed 24/7, the hotline offers crisis intervention, information and referrals to support resources.
