Emergency Shelter Care Program


Emergency Shelter Care Services
Comprehensive care for children affected by abuse, neglect and trauma.

Serving over 1,200 children a year, CRH operates the only emergency shelter for abused children in the Sacramento region.

How we help:

Children’s Receiving Home has a long history of providing quality emergency shelter for the area’s abused and neglected children. The facility is licensed annually by the State Department of Social Services and is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days per year for the admission of children and youth between the ages of 1 and 18.

Children are in crisis when they are admitted to this facility, and our objective is to be as supportive and constructive as possible during their stay.  We also assist with transitional and aftercare services to promote better placement outcomes and more enduring reconnection to families and community.

Besides providing children food, shelter and clothing Children’s Receiving Home offers a variety of programs that deliver comprehensive care.
