About us


What we do and who we are

The Children’s Receiving Home was founded in 1944 through a cooperative effort of the Junior League of Sacramento and the Rotary Club of Sacramento. Previously at two other locations, the Children’s Receiving Home has been located at its current site since 1965, on six acres of land deeded to the agency by the City of Sacramento.

In recent years the Children’s Receiving Home underwent major renovation and addition of cottages and a multipurpose building made possible through the generosity of donors in our area. Today the Receiving Home houses up to 98 children on a beautiful, state of the art facility.
