The Children's Defense Fund-California (CDF-CA) is the California office of the Children's Defense Fund, a national, non-profit child advocacy organization that has worked relentlessly for over 40 years to ensure a level playing field for all children.
CDF-CA was established in Oakland in 1998 to meet the needs of underserved children in the state of California. CDF-CA's Northern California office focuses on health policy and child poverty. Opened in 2001, the Los Angeles office is the hub for CDF-CA's programmatic and policy work in the areas of education, youth leadership training and development, and juvenile justice reform.
