Five Acres



    How a Business Education Can Help You Advance Your Career 

    The mission of Five Acres is to provide safety, well-being and permanency for children and families by building on their strengths and empowering them within communities. Five Acres is a 128 year old organization that started out in 1888, as an orphanage for 40 boys in downtown Los Angeles. Today, we serve more than 8, 500 needy children and their families in five Southern California counties through community-based therapeutic services, a special needs non-public school and foster care and adoption programs. 

    Five Acres is always looking for people eager to positively impact and improve the well-being of our children living at our residential campus, by becoming a Special Friend. To volunteer, click here
