About The
Raise Foundation

The Raise Foundation is a non-profit organization with a singular mission: To end the cycle of child abuse and neglect by providing direct services to families and children.

Especially during times of need, we train child-serving professionals and advocates such as doctors and social workers on a variety of child welfare best practices, and advocate for comprehensive policies to address the needs of our Orange County Community

2020 has been a difficult year for many children and families. The need for Child Abuse Prevention has never been greater!

Advocating Through Hardship

For an organization that is nearly 50 years old, 2020 represented one of the most difficult years in our history.

Child abuse and neglect reporting plummeted by nearly 50%, Family Resource Centers were required to work remotely for a time and all in-person events such as the Annual Pathways to Prevention Conference and Blue Ribbon Kickoff had to be cancelled for the first time in our organization’s history.

Despite these difficulties, The Raise Foundation remained steadfast in its mission and adapted to meet the new needs. TRF conducted more food distributions than ever before, provided direct support to families and children during challenging times of need and reached as many as 600 child-serving professionals in one training!

Our Agency Goals

Love is not patronizing and charity isn't about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same -- with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead.
