California Children's Rehabilitation Foundation was started in 2007 during a chat

between two friends discussing their careers and what they had yet to accomplish.

The result was a non-profit called CCRF. The mission of CCRF is to assist

children and their families with special needs. The Board of Directors for CCRF and

numerous volunteers work diligently each year on a new project.


Everyone involved in CCRF is a volunteer.  All donations generously come from friends

and supporters in the community. The funds generated during each year go directly

toward equipment for the children. CCRF has no employees and we do not lease property.

We rely on gracious individuals and corporations who feel compassion for these young individuals facing various challenges, whether those challenges are physical or cognitive.

In the past we have purchased equipment for children with cerebral palsy, brain injuries,

spinal cord injuries, muscular dystrophy, autism and cancer.


In the past ten years, CCRF has donated equipment for pool therapy, sensory

integration, augmentative communication, spinal cord medicine,

adaptive bicycles, Bioness, and in-room therapy devices. We have donated this therapy equipment to Miller Children's and Women's Hospital Long Beach, Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, and California Aquatic Therapy and Wellness Center to be used by children and teens in Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Kern,
 and Ventura Counties.
