In Childhelp’s home state of California, the Childhelp family stands up for safer childhoods with services to prevent child abuse, treat survivors in need of help, and build stronger families.
Childhelp’s history in California reaches to the very beginning, when civic organizations and philanthropic societies supported the work of International Orphans, Inc. abroad. When the mission’s focus came stateside, the network of supporters and friends in Southern California were only too happy to shape Children’s Village USA, the residential treatment facility that is now Childhelp Merv Griffin Village in Beaumont. With short term residential therapeutic programs (formerly known as group homes), adoption agencies and a community resource center, Childhelp serves families and children across Southern California, and children across the state are impacted by Childhelp’s prevention education efforts and the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline.
Passionate staff and devoted volunteers working together make Childhelp’s mission possible in California, and the impact across the state speaks to that passion.
