Who We Help
CEDARS is here to help kids and families achieve safety, stability, and enduring family relationships. Last year, CEDARS cared for 1,850 kids and families. Additionally, CEDARS provided 88,633 nights of care last year to the kids in our community who need it most.
For kids who are unable to live at home due to abuse, neglect, homelessness, running away or family crises, CEDARS provides an array of safe places to stay that offer structure and support while working to facilitate a successful transition to a more permanent living situation.
At CEDARS we focus on services that are designed to help the entire family-- so those healthy connections grow, and families can stay together. We even offer early childhood opportunities that are supportive and inclusive, so kids can go on to really do well in school.
For kids who are involved with the youth justice system, or at high risk of becoming involved, CEDARS provides positive development programs. These programs focus on preventing future law violations and preparing kids for a successful life in the community.
If you are experiencing a crisis situation, call the National Crisis Hotline at 800-448-3000.
It's open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and staffed by specially trained counselors representing more than 140 languages, along with a TDD line (800-448-1833). Parents, teens and families can find help with abuse, depression, chemical dependency, runaways, school issues, parenting troubles, and much more.
