Childhelp is the answers to so many prayers! I have been a volunteer with Childhelp for 6 years and I am totally dedicated to the awesome good they do in the lives of severely abused children. I have spent time at the Village and with these kids and see how lives are changed and actually saved. Our founders, Sara and Yvonne, have given their lives completely to these kids! They to me are angels on earth. Childhelp is the oldest and largest nonprofit for the prevention and treatment of child abuse... almost 60 years!! That truly says something. And over 90% of every dollar goes directly to the programs. 5 children die everyday from Child abuse... go to Childhelp.org to see how you can help make a difference in these children's lives.
How can you not rate Childhelp with 5 stars! 55 years and still going strong to prevent, treat and create awareness in the world of child abuse. I have volunteered for the last three years and have seen the work done at the Beaumont ,Ca. Village. It is truly amazing to witness the change in the lives of these children and the chance of hope they are given.
Childhelp is a scam. Employees are paid extremely low wages, centers don't have any funding, and "The Ladies" are pure scam artists, making outrageous salaries, they loan money to the non profit at large payoffs, and the whole place is a shabby, unfunded nightmare. Kids deserve better than this terribly run scam.
Hello, I am a child that had a case in Childhelp. I was sexually abused by my stepmother, I have physical evidence and memories, but they called my whole case of because that psychopathic woman passed a polygraph. That ruined me emotionally and I have zero justice. It's supposed to be CHILDhelp, not abuserhelp. You helped my abuser get away with what they did....thanks...
After working with this organization, I have nothing but praise to give regarding the work they do in AZ and California for children and families impacted by child abuse.
I am honored to be a member of the AZ Advisory Board, and to participate in the future work underway for AZ children. This organization and the founders are changing the course of lives through the programs they created in prevention, intervention and treatment of child abuse.
I am a huge advocate for the Childhelp organization. I have had the opportunity to get to know several key people in the organization, and I have witnessed the love and dedication that they have for helping children. I sent the Merv Griffin Village a large box of new clothing for the children, and I not only received a personalized letter of appreciation from the founders, but they also left a voice message on my cell phone thanking me for my donation. I have never received such a sincere gesture of gratitude from any other organization, but it wasn't the gratitude of thanks that made Childhelp my first choice charity to support. It's what they have actually done to prove their words and commitment to treating and preventing child abuse. You don't receive a Nobel Peace nomination for overpaying your organization's leaders as one reviewer claimed, and if you receive five consecutive nominations, you must be doing something pretty damn amazing! I will continue to support Childhelp, because I trust the leadership and direction of the organization as long as Sara & Yvonne are involved. The organization's motto, "For the love of a child", says it all. Those words are the reason for Childhelp's actions and existence, and there is no one who can honestly deny that as the truth.
The work and impact that Childhelp has on the lives of children across the nation is to be highly commended! They are the only charity that I know of that can honestly claim to have the founders of 56 years still going strong and determined as the day they began their work. The true compassion and love that this charity expels is beyond what many can comprehend. They have the highest level of standards when it comes to the care and comfort of the children and families they help. I have only wonderful things to say about this organization, and I thank God that the founders didn't let the negative thoughts of a few change the outcome for what they knew they had to do to keep kids safe.
I am working to help the crisis in AZ with the number of children removed from unsafe homes each day. I know the tremendous impact Childhelp has made in keeping AZ children safe through the partnership with DCS. Childhelp created a safe haven for children removed from homes that are awaiting placements, and the children are now sleeping safely in comfortable beds at night rather than on the floor of offices as was the case for over ten years in AZ. The dedication by the Childhelp founders to keep children safe and provide treatment for the traumas suffered by the children is like no other. They are going on 60 years of focused, immovable efforts to change the outcome for children across the nation by bringing hope and love to overcome the most destructive abuse in the little lives that deserve better. All children deserve love and compassion, and Childhelp has been committed to providing that to every child through their programs and work that impacts every area of child abuse.
Review from Guidestar
I've been an employee of the organization for more than 3 years, and have seen how this organization has truly shaped itself into a life changing and life saving organization for a child in need. Just recently the State of Arizona reached out to Childhelp to ask for the organizations help in caring for children that have been separated from their homes pending the start of an investigation and were sleeping in police vehicles and offices. Childhelp immediately sprang to action, working with the highest levels of government and philanthropic minded community citizens and partners, and created an immediate safe haven for the emergency placement of children. This is what Childhelp does - it takes action where children are in need. With less than 10% of donations going to administrative fees, this organization truly leverages the treasures of its donors to save and positively impact the lives of children in need. I am proud to be associated with this organization, and love knowing that I am surrounded by people in my community that really want to make a true difference in the life of a child.

I'm familiar with Childhelp from the advocacy center in Phoenix. I was in there for a project, and the facility houses all the personnel to respond to such terrible crimes, but it remains warm and friendly nonetheless. It's like a police station, medical clinic and social services office all together in one place. Lots of smiles and helpful people. It really takes a special kind of outlook to do the work they do.
It's clearly a team effort there, but Childhelp is definitely doing good work for the kids of Phoenix.
My favorite part about working for Childhelp is meeting the children who are being impacted by our amazing programs and services. From adult survivors to little lives at Childhelp villages and advocacy centers, watching a child that has been abused suddenly come back to life is a beautiful thing. I work with the Childhelp Founders every day and feel their passion for the mission in all they do. The team is engaged, the plan for the future is strongly routed in prevention education and there is a dream of eradicating child abuse to create safer communities nationwide.
This organization and its founders have saved more than 9 million children from abuse since they began is 1959. I have come to know the Founders and the work being done at Childhelp as a volunteer for the past three years, and I can say with 100% confidence that they truly care about making a difference in the lives of children who suffer from the horrors of child abuse. They have created a new prevention education program for elementary schools to incorporate into their curriculum that will help children suffering from sexual abuse, bullying and so much more.
The children that are taken to the Childhelp residential facilities, are the most severe cases of child abuse, and often the last hope before the child is institutionalized permanently, but Childhelp has proven that it is possible to heal these children so that they are able to go back to society and have hope for a bright future.
