Who Are We?
American Charities Foundation provides 100% volunteer services for at-risk and foster children in Santa Barbara County. We create experiences that provide hope, strength, and joy to kids faced with living in foster care or are at-risk and build on these experiences by adding activities and programs that provide the best possible all round educational opportunities.
American Charities Foundations mission was established to help restore possibilities and create futures for foster and at-risk youth by providing educational programs and activities, giving them meaningful childhood memories, chances to explore their talents, celebrate their lives, and obtain a sense of normalcy.
