Celebrating 135 years
We are excited to celebrate our 135th birthday this year! While the annual report covers highlights from fiscal year 2021-2022, we want to also honor our past, embrace our present, and celebrate our future during this milestone occasion. We have come a long way from 1888 when we opened in a small home on Glower Street in Los Angeles to our five acres in Altadena with numerous offices serving over 6,500 children and families across six counties, with San Diego as our newest county. The purpose of Five Acres has always been to provide safety and well-being for children who need the care from an agency like ours. Take a look at our historical timeline included in the Annual Report 2021-2022.
