My family’s involvement with the CLF over the years has given us jewel-like memories..of kindness in action, watching kids who first entered the program when they lived in shelters..receive CLF college scholarships, seeing families moved from shelters to their own apartments…Knowing what the Care through College Program has meant, to so many kids.”
From the moment CLF started, it was just like the song, “You gotta have heart”, and it did!
Miles and miles of it. I felt it from the beginning, the Staff generating the spirit, the need, and the
love surrounding your goal to help these great kids. Everyone around you, and the organization, could feel the satisfaction received, from just being a part of this fabulous group.”
JAKKS Pacific is proud to partner with the Childrens Lifesaving Foundation’s Project Angel Wings Holiday Program-by donating thousands of toys (each year) to help make the holiday season a little brighter for children and families in need. In the end, the most important aspect of our JAKKS Cares Program is to help children smile, play and succeed.”
Being invited to help fix up Circle x Ranch with Maria (and her friends from Action-Agape) in 1992 for the children turned out to be followed by years of joy. Taking kids on hikes, making great meals, doing crafts with them, and letting them know they are loved- that has simply one the most rewarding experiences of my life.”
We have been working with Children’s Lifesaving Foundation for so many years. It has been amazing to watch the foundation grow through the years, and to witness the many children and families CLF has helped. We feel honored to be a part of this amazing organization.”
We are so honored to be a part of this loving organization, one that brings hope & joy to so many.”
Getting involved with the CLF gifted me with the realization, that,
the more we can help those less fortunate than ourselves, the more fortunate we are– in the sense of seeing our true selves-which is love, manifested.”
For nearly two decades, I have watched Maria D’Angleo and The Children’s Lifesaving Foundation restore entire families to wholeness, rebuild and restructure lives that were lost to complete despair and desperation, and renew faith and hope in the hearts of Children so that they believe in themselves again, knowing they have a true voice, and that their dreams have value can still come true! The Children’s Lifesaving Foundation and their entire team of Staff and Lifesavers are indeed angels!”
Working with CLF gives us an opportunity to be part of something special! The Staff are doing amazing work, and benefiting hundreds of people every year!!!”
Twenty years of miracles! Real tangible miracles! Families saved from the streets! Students turned into valedictorians! Smiling, happy
I love being connected to Children’s Lifesaving Foundation. Maria, Fran and Sean walk the walk: Love saturates everything they do, and they are deeply connected with the women and children they serve, committing to bringing hope and life-changing renewal in the most practical ways.
The CLF truly makes a difference in the lives they serve. The many families they look out for have had tremendous success in ways that they would have never imagined. Thanks to the various programs CLF provides the community, children from families that would be considered “at-risk” by society are getting a chance to graduate high school, attend college, and get jobs that will bring them a prosperous future. Plus, active living is stressed highly so for the children to get a chance to play in the sun and surf fosters a love of outdoors, which is a gift all children should enjoy. Lives are changing and families are growing stronger, in a community that often is faced with adversity. I have so much fun being apart of the CLF, and volunteering with such awesome and inspiring people dedicated to changing the future.”
“The Children’s Lifesaving Foundation has been by far the most rewarding voluntary organization I have ever worked with. The students are beyond inspiring, the leadership is first-class, and the field trips and other activities are so fun, I can’t believe I am not paying to take part. My work with the CLF has changed my life at least as much as it has those of the children we serve.”
We love you All!
