• Mission: Help One Child recruits, trains and supports those willing to open their homes or offer volunteer services to children at risk of abuse or neglect before, during and after foster care.
• 2016 update: Help One Child, founded by Los Altos Hills residents Mark and JoAnne Morris, continues to grow. In the past year, the nonprofit organization assisted nearly 4,200 children in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties, where less than 10 percent of at-risk children receive child-welfare services, according to Executive Director Susan Herman.
