Children's Fund, Inc.
A bright future for every child.
Giving our vulnerable children support, opportunity and hope by breaking destructive cycles through community partnerships.
We do this through:
We support children throughout the year through our Emergency Needs
Program, Care Campaigns and especially at the holidays through
Celebration of Giving.
Emergency Needs program: Last year, 2,969 children were supported with
tangible items such as food, new clothing, personal hygiene products,
refrigerators, beds/bedding for a good night’s sleep, dental/orthodontic
care and other items to meet a vital and immediate need.
Care Campaigns: Each year, we organize drives for items needed by our
children, such as backpacks and school supplies, jackets and shoes.
Last year, 259 foster youth between ages 18-25 were provided a scholarship
and many more benefitted from mentorship programs.
Scholarship: Children’s Fund supports scholarships at CSU-San Bernardino,
Cal Poly Pomona, and four San Bernardino County Community Colleges.
Mentorship: Children’s Fund has also designated funds to support a mentorship
program at our local Universities. This programs gives the students the support
and confidence needed to achieve academic excellence, greater self-esteem and
Last year, 1,800 children were evaluated for sexual abuse, physical abuse, and/or severe neglect at the Children’s Fund Children’s Assessment Center.
At the Center, the only one of its kind, specially-trained forensic pediatricians and nurse practitioners, forensic interviewers, victim advocates, therapists and law enforcement officers engage these children in a safe and comforting environment, significantly reducing their trauma.
Nearly half the children seen at the Center are under age five. Mack, the Old English Sheep Dog and live mascot of the center, is a therapy/comfort dog who watches over the children while they are at the Center, and significantly reduces their stress and trauma.
