To help parents raise healthy children, Children’s Bureau ( offers an array of child abuse prevention and treatment services aimed at strengthening families and communities throughout Southern California. Our comprehensive programs focus on parents with kids (newborns through age 12) and include in-home and center-based counseling; child and parent development; health; child and parent education groups; tutoring and reading programs; and community resource referrals.


Our vision is to significantly change the lives of at-risk children by providing state-of-the-art child abuse prevention and treatment services. While increasing the scope, depth and volume of services, we will engage in continuous discovery through research to determine and implement what works and be a passionate advocate on behalf of children and families.


Children’s Bureau is committed to providing vulnerable children — especially in the early years — the foundation necessary to become caring and productive adults by:

  • Preventing child abuse and neglect;
  • Protecting, nurturing and treating abused children;
  • Enhancing the potential of families and communities to meet the needs of their children;
  • Advancing the welfare of children and families through superior programs in foster care, adoptions, child development, parent education, mental health, research and advocacy.
