About CEDARS Home for Children Foundation

The mission of CEDARS Home for Children Foundation is to make a lasting impact in the lives of children by connecting the charitable community to the mission of CEDARS Youth Services.  

CEDARS is here to ensure that all kids have a safe environment where they can grow and thrive. We walk alongside them, using a holistic approach that provides support from infancy through young adulthood, with a variety of services to meet individual needs.  

We’re also here to walk with families, offering them resources, opportunities, and education to keep their family connections strong. 

Funds from CEDARS Home for Children Foundation not only provide major support for capital projects, but annual funding also offers stability and flexibility to continue CEDARS long history of mission-based work to help children achieve safety, stability, and enduring family relationships. Because of this support, CEDARS can continue to do what we have done for more than 75 years and counting – be here for kids and families despite pandemics, fluctuations in the economy, or changes in government services.   

Our commitment is to the continuation of programs and services by CEDARS Youth Services so that CEDARS can be relied upon without fail by kids who need us most. This important work would not be possible without the generosity of our loyal donors and community. Our partners and donors help us be here for kids who need us most. Thank you for your support.
