You are changing lives for generations

Most of the children who arrive at Casa de los Niños come with nothing but the clothes on their backs.

Casa de los Niños provides basic needs such as clothing, food, diapers and a place to sleep as well as toys and any other items to make the children feel at home. Below are the items we need most.

In-kind donations are vital to Casa de los Niños, and we thank you for your generous support. Our goal is to provide the children we serve with new, quality, long-lasting items, maybe for the first time in their lives. We will accept items from our Wish List, including new or gently used children’s clothing, new toys, new books, diapers, formula and hand-made items (i.e. hats, gloves or blankets, etc). Items that we are not able to use in our crisis shelter or other programs will be sent to our Thrift Store.

Casa de los Niños accepts donations at our Administrative Offices located at 1101 N 4th Ave. (northwest corner of Speedway and 4th Avenue) during our normal business hours, Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
