About The Raise Foundation

Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect by Strengthening Families

Our Mission

The Raise Foundation is dedicated to stopping the cycle of abuse through education, advocacy, community collaboration, and comprehensive services for families and children.

Programs and Services

Programs and services provided by The Raise Foundation, which convenes the Child Abuse Prevention Council, are made possible by funding from the Federal Government, State of California, County of Orange and the Orange County Children’s Trust Fund.

Family Resource Centers (FRCs)
Connect families with the services and basic needs that help them to become stronger healthier families. Services include culturally sensitive health education, including assistance with a health insurance enrollment, classes such as anger management, counseling, and family programs. The Raise Foundation is currently in 7 of the 15 County FRCs.

Resources in Motion (RIM)
Bring the mobile family resource center into isolated underserved communities to deliver services such as health access, basic needs assistance, and referrals to other helpful services.

Annual Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Conference
Provide professionals in the social services, education, health, and law enforcement fields the opportunity to continue their education through information workshops. A parent mini -conference is now also included.

Food Distribution Events & Adopt a Family
Through a collaborative effort, families-in-need are provide healthy foods on a monthly basis. To brighten the lives of children and their families, donors support families-in-need anonymously with holiday gifts and essentials every December.

Awareness Campaigns/Advocacy
Through Blue Ribbon (Child Abuse Prevention) Month in April and Kaitlin’s Law summer campaign focused on safety and child children in cars, the organization and overall community advocate for child safety by having a kick off ceremony, family events, parenting classes, “planting” blue pinwheel gardens, and much more. Starting in 2016, individuals began being trained as “Raise Awareness Ambassadors” to help educate the community on the prevention of child abuse and neglect.
