The Children's Receiving Home of Sacramento is committed to positively impacting the lives of children, youth, and families affected by abuse, neglect, behavioral health issues, and trauma in California.
Founded in 1944, the Children’s Receiving Home is the safety net for the Sacramento area’s abused and neglected children between the ages of 1 and 17; we are th e only emergency shelter of its kind in the area. With a daily capacity of 88, we serve more than 1,500 children each year. As a shelter, the Receiving Home is a refuge where children can stabilize and heal from the severe abuse and neglect they have suffered. When children are brought here they are frightened and upset because their world has been turned upside down. While in our care each child receives a full scale assessment and diagnosis and a comprehensive level of services, including food, shelter and clothing, activities and recreation, an on-site school, and medical and dental care; all which enable the child to cope with their fears and process what they have experienced.
