Guardians of Hope

“When you strengthen families, you strengthen the building blocks of Santa Clarita Valley”
Cheri Fleming, Valencia Acura
Guardians of Hope Campaign Chair 2010-2012

Guardians of Hope is a distinguished group of individuals, businesses, and civic leaders who wish to expand and enhance the important work of Child & Family Center by making an unrestricted contribution of $1,000 or more annually. Their investment helps prevent more serious problems from developing down the road, improving lives and saving money in the long run.

The fund has proven to be enormously beneficial for the children, families and adults that come to the Center for services they desperately need. Funding for mental health services are often subjected to budget cuts, limitations, regulations and changes in eligibility. That leaves those who are struggling with significant behavioral problems in school, potential violence in the home, depression, withdrawal, the aftermath of abuse, anxiety, confusion and many other issues without the means to have those issues addressed.

Since its inception in 2010, the number of children and young adults helped through Guardians of Hope numbers in the hundreds and over $370,000 has been raised for this important work. Our clients and their therapists have been immensely grateful to the Guardians of Hope, which allows critically needed services to continue, enabling many local young people and adults reach their full potential for becoming responsible members of the community.

Special thanks to Cheri Fleming, Joyce Carson and Bill Cooper, early chairs of the Leadership and Community campaigns, and to Harold & Jacquie Petersen for their generosity and inspiration as Honorary Chairs. Also, we wish to thank our Governing and Foundation Board and our many community donors who continue to support this important endeavor. 

We invite you to become a member of Guardians of Hope. By accepting our invitation you will be investing in the children, teens and families we serve while supporting programs that provide hope and make positive changes possible.
