Childhelp Founders Talk Compassion, Child Abuse Prevention on ‘Arizona Originals’ Podcast

The founders of Childhelp, Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson joined the Arizona Originals podcast, a production by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce to talk about their history of activism, what inspired them to start Childhelp, and the issue of child abuse in America.

Ep. 22 – Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson – Childhelp

Today’s guests are Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson, the founders of Childhelp.  Since 1959, Sara and Yvonne have dedicated themselves to caring for orphans and abused children in the US and around the world.  Their story begins in 1950s Hollywood and takes us to Japan, Vietnam, and ultimately right here to Arizona when they relocated their headquarters here 22 years ago.

Our conversation demonstrates the passion and compassion Sara and Yvonne have for children, and how various events – many unexpected – over the course of their lives have shaped them as leaders and changed the lives of countless children.  Their stories and wisdom will inspire and encourage you.
