- Since 1984, Love-A-Child Missions has been serving needy women and children of Contra Costa County by providing emergency shelter, food, clothing, and offering hope through substance recovery programs, job training, educational support, and many other programs.
Love-A-Child Missions is the largest recovery shelter in Contra Costa County, serving over 400 women and children annually. Their strategy focuses on healing the whole person by providing emergency housing, nutrition, clothing, recovery services (from substance abuse and battery), parent education classes and counseling with daily personal growth classes. They work to resolve the issues that have caused homelessness through providing stability, structure, and safety.
Love-A-Child Missions seeks to bring together the County Court System, local churches, educational institutions, and health care providers in our holistic approach for recovery. Through this partnership with the community, our hope is to build self-sufficiency, promote healthy living and restore the confidence and dignity of all the women of Love-A-Child Missions.
