Our Mission

Our mission is to recruit, train and support those willing to provide a home or volunteer services to at-risk children. We are a non-profit, non-denominational, local outreach to families caring for children both in and out of the foster care system.

Any family caring for an at-risk child is welcome, whether a certified foster or adoptive home, providing relative care, or a biological family struggling to keep their children at home. As a “hands-on” Christian ministry, Help One Child has been embraced by hundreds of churches in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties since 1993. If you’re looking for volunteer opportunities, check out our Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities. If you’re a caregiver in need of support, visit our Families Overview page!
