About Lincoln

What We Do

Since our founding in 1883 as the first racially integrated orphanage in Northern California, Lincoln has impacted the lives of children and families through evolving programs. Today, we provide preventative, individualized and comprehensive support services with a focus on three core areas that disrupt cycles of poverty and trauma:

  • Education: Improving educational engagement, attendance, literacy, and achievement

  • Family: Strengthening stability and creating permanency

  • Well-Being: Building positive youth outlook and future readiness

How We Do It

Every day, in communities throughout our region, Lincoln is providing real solutions to the unique issues our children, youth, and families face. At Lincoln, we go where children and youth are, walking alongside them to develop skills to stay at home and in school. Teams of skilled and diverse staff work together with youth and families to utilize their strengths and build a plan for success. With this critical support, our children, youth and families thrive and build bold futures.

Only Lincoln has the culturally relevant, adaptive approach that meets the needs of children and families. Our multi-generational model sets a new standard of support that changes lives.
