When our kids come to Whaley Children's Center, they come to us at the lowest point of their lives. They enter with a garbage bag filled with their belongings. They do not have their mothers to kiss their boo-boos. They have not had the memories and experiences to make a happy childhood. Some never have celebrated a birthday or had the simplicity of having a pizza party or a movie night. It takes a village to raise 42 kids. With your help, you create our village so that our kiddos have a home and a family. You make the difference in their lives. Please consider being a part of our village today.
When you become part of our village, it allows you to make a monthly recurring gift. As a member, you will be joining a group of supporters who understand the importance of making a sustaining impact. Your monthly gift allows us to strategically plan and innovate for the future of our children. Plus, you will receive exclusive updates on your impact and recognition in our monthly newsletter.

When a child gets hurt, the very first person they look for is their mother. For the children at Whaley Children's Center, this is not an option. Whether it is a bump, bruise, scrape, cut or an invisible boo-boo, our children know they can go visit the medical & therapy departments to feel better. Your monthly donation will give us all the things we need to help them heal.
Cozy nights in with a bowl of popcorn and catching the latest movie. The most perfect night is created when you become a Smile Producer. This covers all the essentials: snacks, popcorn, popcorn seasoning, and our subscriptions to Hulu, Netflix, and Disney+. It's one of our favorite ways to make Whaley home.
From ice cream socials to pizza parties, you will give our children some of the simple joys of being a kid. Your gift will provide fun activities that create happy memories. Many of our children have never been exposed to those fun childhood experiences that we all have experienced as kids.
Every child deserves to feel extra special on their birthday. For many of our children, their very first birthday celebration happens at Whaley. Your contribution will help them feel important on their special day by having a cake with their name, decorations in their home, and birthday presents.
Every year, approximately 90 children come and go through our doors. Upon arrival, the majority of our children show up to our steps with only a garbage bag full of their life possessions. You can help make them feel like they belong. Your monthly donation will provide a child with a backpack full of all the essentials and soothing items for welcoming them to their new home. These contributions are also used to make sure that a child who is moving on from the Center has a suitcase filled with all that is needed to help in their new journey.
