• Providing sleeping bags to keep children warm on cold, rainy, windy nights

    Sleeping Bags for Kids — Our sleeping bag program keeps hundreds of kids warm and cozy on cold nights in under-heated homes and trailers.

  • Grants for the Arts - MCCF provides grants to community artists and school programs to encourage each child's discovery of their inner artist.

  • Back to School Program - We want every child to feel like they belong. Every August, we provide more than 200 coastal children the chance to "shop" at our Back to School store.

  • Activities - We help children participate in sports, camps, field trips, and safe travel to school. We also help with special activity and college application fees.

  • Medical & Health — We provide everything from diapers to help keep newborns dry and clean, to hygiene products for teens, and emergency funds for families with local children hospitalized out of the area.

  • A Helping Hand – We serve youth from Rockport to Gualala and inland to Comptche in Mendocino County, California. We are the safety net for our coastal infants and children.

You Can Make a Difference!
