Save the Children implements long-term literacy and nutrition programs in California's Central Valley and in San Bernadino. The agency also advocates at a state and national level to raise the priority of children in disaster planning, response and recovery.

Save the Children works in more than 50 countries, including the United States, and serves more than 33 million children and 32 million others working to save and improve children's lives, including parents, community members, local organizations and government agencies.
