Who We Are

We help children and families restore hope and rebuild trusting relationships by meeting their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs in Christian love.

Since 1936, Sunny Glen has been a refuge for abused, neglected, and forgotten children.

Our organization has a rich history of serving children in crisis, with a passionate team committed to their well-being.
