Our Mission

The mission of Rancho Damacitas Children & Family Services is to end the cycle of child abuse by providing comprehensive care and compassion for abused and neglected children and young adults through life-enriching opportunities and strength-based, solution-focused programs and services.

Our vision is to nurture, empower and develop self-sufficient, well-educated, healthy young adults who become thriving, contributing members of our community.

“I am really proud about being able to grow in ways that I wasn’t able to do before.  I believe in myself now and I believe in the person I can be.”
