Fund the Mission


Our staff of 5 serves over 700 families. Each year hundreds of volunteers are deployed to more than 3000 service opportunities that translate to over 16000 hours ~ the equivalent 8 full time employees. Our full-service offices and event space are donated by Union Presbyterian Church; we conservatively book this savings at $80,000 per year.

The ministry of Help One Child is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that receives no government funding and relies entirely on donations from individuals, foundation grants, and support from churches. We invite you to read our Year End Report to learn more about how Help One Child is using your gifts to bless Bay Area foster youth. Below you will find a way to give that best meets your need. We promise to be good stewards.
