Can't spend a dime? 
Then, spend some time... helping us help those in need.

Our experience shows that over 90% of refugee children who have legal representation are granted asylum status...while those who don't are usually denied.  We partner with non-profit law firms and attorneys offering pro-bono and "low-bono" services to ensure our kids receive fair and competent representation during their court hearings.

Our refugee kids fled their homes to escape deadly violence, often enduring a long and perilous journey to get here. But resettling in a new country and learning a different language can be a difficult and lonely process as well. We give our kids a sense of warmth and belonging by organizing social activities, providing playtime, tutoring, and most importantly a chance to get acclimated to a new life.

The mission of the San Fernando Valley Refugee Children Center in North Hills is to be a healing embrace to the hundreds of unaccompanied children who have made the perilous journey from Central America to seek refuge in the San Fernando Valley.  Our overarching goal is to reach out to these children and their families and offer our Center as a place of welcome and healing through partnerships with community organizations to provide for basic needs, services and resources including:

  • Legal assistance
  • Fun gatherings, field trips, potlucks, etc.
  • Clothes, blankets
  • Personal hygiene items
  • School supplies
  • Toys
  • Emotional and spiritual support
  • Financial assistance for basic care and/or referrals for medical, dental, vision needs

Together, we can make a difference


How do you want to help save lives?

We are here to provide kids a healing embrace...


Helping refugee children to feel welcome in a new environment requires the support of many caring organizations and individuals. We've got many successes under our belt, but we need more help, and that's where you come in.

There's so much you can do. Contact us to learn more about opportunities and ideas for donating, fundraising, buying supplies, advocating, and involving your school or company.
