Kids Matter Auxiliary works with Crittenton Services in Fullerton to assist abused children and families in crisis both in residential care homes and in the community. Our boys and girls are from babies through young adults. We also have our own foster care and adoption agency. We serve victims of human trafficking, those suffering every form of abuse, mental health issues, homelessness, or substance abuse issues within the family.
Most of what we do through St. Martins has been in the form of donations for items such as shoes, dignity baskets with hygiene items and cleaning supplies, school supplies/backpacks, and our biggest endeavor, the Angel Tree Program at Christmastime. Near Thanksgiving, people choose wishes off the holiday tree after mass and returns their child’s new gift be Dec 10th. Perhaps your business or social group would like to adopt a family this holiday. Gifts are $3 to $40. If you would like to volunteer directly with the children in Fullerton, you may call 714 680-9000 and ask for Bev Berryman.
