The story of Childhelp spans more than 55 years and is about two young Hollywood actresses’ “chance” encounters—one with 11 homeless orphans abroad, and one with Nancy Reagan —and how they led to a lifelong commitment to helping children in need.

CEO and Co-Founder Sara O’Meara and President and Co-Founder Yvonne Fedderson started Childhelp in 1959, establishing it as a leading national non-profit organization dedicated to meeting the needs of abused, neglected and at-risk children. Childhelp focuses on advocacy, prevention, treatment and community outreach.

Childhelp’s programs include the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline, 1-800-4-A-CHILD, residential treatment villages, children’s advocacy centers, group homes, foster family and adoption agencies and a child abuse prevention education curriculum for students called Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe and a child abuse prevention education program for athletes called Childhelp Blow the Whistle on Child Abuse.
