We are a premier provider dedicated to improving the overall well-being and functioning of vulnerable children, youth, and their families. Our vision is to create lasting change in the lives of all at-risk children and youth we serve. Our mission is to provide high quality care, advocacy, and innovative services that promote safe, permanent environments where young people can thrive.
From our inception 104 years ago in 1913, children have always come first at Hillsides. Including our affiliation with Bienvenidos, we provide comprehensive community-based and residential treatment programs to more than 13,000 at-risk children and families throughout Southern California. Our expert and experienced practitioners partner with other organizations, community agencies, and healthcare professionals to make Hillsides one of the region’s most respected and trusted organizations.
Hillsides consists of five core programs that meet our clients' needs in healing, rebuilding trust, and restoring hope: Hillsides and Bienvenidos Family Resource Centers, Residential Treatment Services, Hillsides Education Center, Youth Moving On, and Bienvenidos Foster Care and Adoptions. Through these services, families are preserved, children are protected and begin to heal from traumatic childhood experiences, students with learning or behavioral challenges enjoy new-found academic achievements, and youth formerly in foster care successfully transition to adulthood.
