The hardest job you will ever love!

We have created a workplace that successfully impacts children and their families in need, and that starts with happy, healthy teams. We work hard to bring on team members from a wide variety of backgrounds, identities, and skill sets, all with the goal of building an amazing team. We’re always on the lookout for motivated, hardworking, and solution focused people who are committed to an industry committed to helping people.

Headquartered in Altadena, CA

We serve children and their families across SoCal. Our team is set up to be successful wherever you work – whether it’s our headquarters, one of our physical locations, in the field, remotely, or a little of all the above.

Rooted in our mission 

We are a mission-driven company that uses data and believes in strategic planning to drive decisions that helped us build a sustaining company celebrating over 135 years of uninterrupted services.

Committed to being human

We are a team of smart, hardworking, high-fiving (sometimes hugging), kind humans with a healthy sense of humor ready to take on the work of helping people in need.
