The Children’s Receiving Home believes every child should have
uninterrupted access to an educational setting that fits their
needs. Children and youth residing at CRH are transported to
their schools of origin throughout the entire Sacramento region.
Since the passage of Assembly Bill 490, children and youth in
foster care can choose to attend their last school of origin or
their “home school.” A child’s county social worker may
decide it is to the benefit of the child to stay in the school
they attended last. The children and youth who reside at
Children’s Receiving Home may be attending a school in one of
several school districts represented in Sacramento County. For
CRH, this means maintaining a fleet of vans and cars to transport
and a transportation team to drive them.
On average, CRH transportation staff drive over
300 miles per day shuttling kids to school. They
use 4 staff, 2 vans and
2 cars to transport an average of
30 kids criscrossing the entire County of
Sacramento and in the process burning approximately
144 gallons of gas per week!
