About Hillsides

For over a century, Hillsides has helped children heal, grow, and thrive. The organization was founded in 1913 by a compassionate young Deaconess of the Episcopal Church, Evelyn Wile. She opened a home for neglected and abandoned children, and later created a campus of cottages where children could enjoy a country-like environment with plenty of sunshine, fresh air, and open space. The beautiful 17 acres of land she acquired in the foothills of Pasadena continues to be a site that serves children to this day. 

In the decades that followed, Hillsides shifted from long-term custodial care to become a therapeutic residential center providing specialized care to vulnerable youth. The campus grew and additional off-campus satellite locations opened.

Today, Hillsides offers behavioral health treatment services on-campus and in the community working with schools, families, and various partner agencies. The organization also matches foster and adoption families with children who need a loving home and supports them with essential guidance. And through its Youth Moving On division, young adults transitioning out of the foster care system receive mental health support, workforce development, and transitional housing.

As it heads into the next 100 years, Hillsides is committed to create lasting change in the lives of children, youth, and families. As a vital member of the Hillsides family, you have the opportunity to help change the trajectory of thousands of lives. Thank you for considering employment at Hillsides.
