Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento
The Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento’s mission is to positively impact the lives of children, youth, and families affected by abuse, neglect, and trauma by providing a safe haven of comfort, hope, and healing. The Children’s Receiving Home provides refuge to over 1,200 children in the shelter and day treatment/out-patient mental health programs each year.
The Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento has received the 2020 Inspire Giving grant and will be working this year to create multi-sensory de-escalation rooms. These will keep youth engaged in the program and away from temptations of negative influences and self-destructive behaviors. If you want to get involved in this project for the year, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Impact of COVID19
The biggest challenge right now is that the kids cannot leave for activities or even convene in groups. As always, it is a challenge to occupy the kids, keep them calm, and ensure they are learning.
How You Can Help
- Hospital isolation gowns, shoe covers, face shields, they need it to set up a quarantine if any of the kids test positive for COVID19.
- Tablets/laptops so kids can do their remote schooling (secondhand is fine!)
