Mission Statement

Five Acres promotes safety, well-being and permanency for children and their families by building on their strengths and empowering them within their communities

Description

We recently celebrated a remarkable milestone for Five Acres - 128 years of uninterrupted service to Southern California caring for vulnerable children and their families. Originally founded in downtown LA as an orphanage, our initial mission was simply to provide safety to children who had no home. In time, our mission expanded to also focus on the well-being of our clients and caring for the mental and emotional health of children who were increasingly coming to us as a result of abuse or neglect. Having grown to an agency caring for nearly 8,400 children and family members annually across five counties, we now strive for permanency - a permanent, loving home - for all those in our care.

These three pillars; safety, well-being and permanency provide the framework for all of Five Acres’ current programs and they will guide our steps in the future as we continue seeking even more effective means of caring for children and families in crisis. For over 128 years Five Acres has been committed to preserving successful childcare programs and developing innovative services for children and families in crisis. With over 100,000 clients served since its founding in 1888, Five Acres currently cares for 8,500 children and families annually, across five counties including Los Angeles.
