News & Updates

Happy Spring!


MVCFS has been serving California children and families for more than 50 years. You can help our efforts year-round to nurture and support the children we serve.

Many of the children shared their wish lists with us for items they would like to receive as a special gift. The children listed a variety of things that have meaning for them that would help them to celebrate birthdays, graduations, holidays, homecomings, or other important events in their lives.

You can see many of these items on our Amazon Mountain Valley Kids Gift Registry and select any gift(s) (tax-deductible) that you would like to send to one of our children. Items will be given directly to the children of Mountain Valley Child & Family Services, Nevada City, CA. Your gift will make an enduring impression and difference in the life of one of our boys or girls. It will also help provide them with the inspiration and motivation to make better life choices because they will know and understand that thoughtful people like you care about them.

Mountain Valley Child & Family Services 50th Anniversary

Celebrating 50 years helping young boys grow up and serving children and families since 1968

We celebrated the 50th year of MVCFS with our families, children and staff.

It was a wonderful day: Games, rock climing, barbque, gifts and an inspiring talk from Dick Milhous.

Thank you to everyone who participated and made this an incredible and memorable day of celebration.

Looking forward to the next 50 years!
