For more than 100 years, Children’s Institute has supported children and families in healing from traumatic experiences. We work with 30,000 individuals in Los Angeles communities where decades of underinvestment and racist policies have resulted in poverty and lack of opportunity.
What We Do
We believe that real change starts with collaboration and trusted partnerships with community members and other local organizations. We offer high-quality early education and youth programs, counseling services, parenting supports, workforce and community leadership development, and advocacy for community investment where it is needed most.
We partner with 30,000 children & families annually
