Heal, grow, and thrive.

They may be small words, but they make a huge impact. And at Hillsides, we are committed to them.

We help the 14,000 children and families we serve heal from trauma, grow in skills and resiliency, and thrive in their schools, communities, and workplaces. We transform loss and tragedy into hope and a bright future.

These words were key for Riley, a young girl who arrived at our Hillsides residential program full of anger and mistrust due to her years spent in the foster care system. Our staff surrounded her with love and care, with the goal of finding her a home with a family. They were successful, and today Riley is living happily with a loving resource (foster) parent.
Healing, growing, and thriving are also crucial for the children, youth, and families in all our programs, whether a child in foster care, a student with learning challenges, a youth transitioning from foster care, or a family challenged with financial or mental health needs.

Please join us as we strengthen and transform families and communities.We can’t do it alone. To make a truly big impact, we need you. Please consider making a gift of $50, $100, $250, or $500 today.
