CHILD International is proud to announce that in 2018 over 50 families in Orange County received financial assistance totaling $135,000 towards housing assistance, living expenses, healthcare, education, job search, and transportation. In this program we focus on the immediate needs of local families in Orange and Los Angeles Counties. The mission of "Adopt-a- Family" Program is to provide short-term relief while empowering family members in becoming self-sufficient and self-reliant. These families are selected through careful evaluation and once admitted will be continually monitored while receiving aid. Through the Adopt-a-Family program, families receive aid in all aspects of life such as housing assistance, career planning, health and educational counseling, holiday gifts and other basic essentials of life.
