About CHS

For over 132 years, Children’s Home Society of California (CHS) has adapted to the changing needs of children and families. Since 1891, CHS has worked diligently to protect our community’s children and strengthen their families through diverse programs and services.

At CHS, we view a child not in isolation, but in the context of each family’s health, stability, and resources. We believe that families are fundamentally strong and resilient. That is why CHS offers programs and services to build upon a family’s inherent strengths so they can move toward self-sufficiency.

Children’s Home Society of California is a nonprofit organization that is governed by a Board of Directors, made up of dedicated volunteers from throughout California.

The President of CHS leads the agency and conserves our most significant asset, the CHS Endowment. The President oversees program services, agency operations, and program development efforts, as well as program enhancement departments including Community Outreach, Quality Assurance, and Best Practices & Outcomes. This is accomplished with the vital assistance and support of key staff and the work of highly-trained program staff.

Our Corporate Headquarters is located in Los Angeles, California, with additional offices in Long Beach, Oakland, Orange, San Diego, Ventura, Woodland, and Yuba City.
