Since 1904, Children's Bureau has been a nonprofit leader in the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect. More than 30,000 children and families are helped each year throughout Southern California with services that include school readiness, parenting classes, family resource centers, support groups, mental health counseling, foster care and adoption. Children’s Bureau is one of the largest investors in child abuse prevention in the country and is developing a national model to transform an entire at-risk community through its Magnolia Community Initiative.
With limited staff, volunteers provide invaluable support to help ensure that our programs are delivered with care and provide a quality experience for our families. Volunteering with the library program includes helping with preparation for arts and crafts, organizing the library, interacting with children and parents, reading books to children and helping with homework.
