Community support

There's an old saying 

    "It takes a village to raise a child". 

In a tough neighborhood in downtown Anaheim, Higher Ground

has built a village, a safe haven that is welcoming to all

ages, colors, and faiths, to play, learn, work, and grow in body, mind, and spirit. 

It's a place where children and their parents can find the support they need to create a better way of living.​


We are proud of the many partners, collaborators, and associates we work with.
