Here at CRH we are currently getting ready to celebrate
Halloween, but we need your help! We’re seeking Fairy Godparents
to bestow a spirited season of make-believe and magic upon our
youth! Sponsoring a dorm with a gift of $250 will ensure that
every child’s costume wish comes true, provides materials for our
highly-competitive dorm-decorating contest and purchases tickets
for a group outing to a local haunted house. To become a fairy
godparent this #Halloween for one of the dorms above message
us on our social media pages or email firstname.lastname@example.org!
Gift cards are a great way to help CRH meet the needs of the kids
we serve. Not only do they enable us to take the kids on outings
or for special meals; they allow us to procure specific
therapeutic materials, birthday gift requests or supplies for a
school project “on demand”.
Some favorites are Target, Walmart, Amazon, Five Below, 99 Cent
Store, Michael’s, Jo-Ann Fabrics, GameStop, Chipotle, Popeyes,
Pizza Hut or Crumbl cookies.
A big thank you to everyone who donated on May 6th on the Big Day
of Giving. All funds will be going to support our
Therapeutic Recreation Program. Thanks to all of you we were able
to reach a new record and raise $80,000.

Each year on the first Thursday in May, the Sacramento
region comes together to support organizations that make our
community stronger. The Big Day of Giving is a 24-hour,
community-wide fundraising movement, organized by the Sacramento Region

Sacramento region raised a record-breaking $13.3 million, and
donors invested $80,210 of that in the youth served by the
Children’s Receiving Home!
Each month our Activities Team engages one of our staff who has a
“hidden” talent – to teach and inspire our youth. One of our
residential counselors taught the kids coping tools through
art via a friendly dorm-to-dorm competition!

Here at CRH, the holidays are truly the most wonderful time of
the year. This year, as we continue to wear our masks and
practice social distancing, the holidays looked a bit different
Our donation station shifted from our front lobby to our parking
lot, and our Angel Tree transformed into an online Wish List of
gifts; but that didn’t stop you! Thanks to
your flexibility, our kids will experience a holiday season to
Sacramento County Child Protective
Services’ Centralized Placement Support Unit (which has
leased space on our campus for the last 10 years) has relocated
to a County-owned property.
CPSU and the Children’s Receiving Home have long collaborated to
meet our shared goal of ensuring that children who have suffered
abuse or neglect have a safe place to live, home-cooked meals and
nurturing care while longer-term placements are located.
Since 1944 we have committed ourselves to positively
impacting the lives of children, youth, and families affected by
abuse, neglect, behavioral health issues, and trauma in
California. Originating as an emergency shelter, CRH has
transformed over the years as the needs of youth and families
Thank you to everyone who volunteered and donated gifts to
our children and teens this holiday season! It is truly
remarkable to see how the Sacramento community comes together to
make this time of year merry for our area’s most vulnerable
Here at CRH, ’tis the season for hope, healing, and community
involvement. This month, we get to experience friends all
over the Sacramento area getting into the holiday spirit and
having fun supporting the kids at CRH.
The children and teens in our care come from tragedy,
neglect, and pain. In a season where the importance of
home and family is a constant reminder, it can be difficult to
remember what there is to be thankful for at all.
Our youth are creative, resilient, and
hopeful. This month, a vibrant yellow wall titled
“Give Thanks” lights up the girls’ cottage on campus. After being
asked what it is that they’re thankful for, our girls picked up
markers and began their lists:
