force for good positive disruptors Mar 10, 2021


Sara O'Meara and Yvonne Fedderson were just two friends and young actresses in 1959. They were performing on a USO tour in Japan when they stumbled upon 11 young orphans in need of loving homes.

What happened next would take them on the lifetime journey as they dedicated their lives to fighting child abuse and neglect abroad and then in the U.S.

They founded Childhelp, the nation's oldest and largest nonprofit dedicated to fighting child abuse and neglect, and still lead the organization today.

Childhelp operates programs across the country in addition to the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline, which helps nearly 100,000 children in need every year, while Childhelp has served more than 11 million children & families throughout its 61-year history.

"You can have a good program written down on paper but it takes a good staff to carry it all."

"We have to do our duty but then we have to turn it over to God to do the rest."

"Put yourself out of the picture and see how you can help someone else and especially the children."
