About Us


To develop a coordinated and global network to ensure that children in disasters and crises have the tools and support needed to promote positive coping and resilience.


To empower and support children and families in crises by integrating child life professionals’ services into impacted communities.  Through individualized direct services, community outreach, education, and research, Child Life Disaster Relief mitigates the effects of traumatic events on children and families.

Here at Child Life Disaster Relief, our approach to diversity is simple—it’s about embracing everyone. From building a culture where all staff and volunteers can bring their best selves to work to deploy diversity initiatives that span cross-culturally on a global scale, we’re doing what it takes to build an inclusive world for all through therapeutic first aid where and when children need it the most.
