Since 1978, Casa de Amparo has become an impressive force in the field of child abuse treatment and prevention, making a difference in the lives of thousands of San Diego’s children and families. Casa de Amparo’s bold and insightful vision of child abuse treatment and prevention would not be possible without the generous involvement of the community. We now call on you, to bring your insight and innovation as well as resources and financial contributions and partner with us in our effort to end child abuse and neglect in San Diego County.
It takes commitment and collaboration, but we believe a community dedicated to ending generational cycles of child abuse is within our reach. By supporting this effort, you are investing in a San Diego where children will be safe, nurtured and provided with the opportunity to thrive – without the fear of abuse or neglect.

One of the best ways you can support our work is by joining the Casa Kids Monthly Donor Club. The majority of our annual support is received during the last few months of the year, but our monthly donors help make sure we are able to care for our Casa Kids and families throughout the year.

By becoming a member, you will make a difference in the lives of children and families impacted by abuse and neglect through a monthly gift that is charged to your credit card. You will join a special group of people reaching out each month to help provide child abuse prevention and treatment to Casa Kids and families in need.

To become a monthly donor click here, and select “recurring”, it’s as easy as that to support Casa de Amparo all year long.


The programs and services provided by Casa de Amparo to abused and neglected children cannot exist without the annual donations of our many generous supporters. Annual campaigns keep all of our programs running and provides support for us to go “beyond the basics” for the children and families who need our services. No matter how long a child is in our care—a day, weeks, months or even years—our priority every day is to tend to each child’s unique needs, enrich the lives of all Casa Kids and help them fulfill their potential.


Casa de Amparo’s Signature Partner Program is an opportunity for companies to demonstrate their commitment to Casa Kids throughout the year in ways that are meaningful to each partnering company. Signature Partners have many options for involvement—from volunteering and event sponsorship to donating opportunities, such as monthly wish list and other giving drives or hosting fundraising events.
