A Partner to LA Kids, Families and Schools

HOW WE HELP
Services for Students
Our community activities for young children encourage learning through play and new experiences. These programs - ACT, Power UP!, Galaxy, Camp Booth and more - help children develop social skills, learn positive habits, create friendships and build confidence.
We provide school-based counseling for students at over 30 schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District. Our team of professionals - many of whom are from the same LA neighborhoods we serve - help kids overcome challenges and build resilience for success at school and in life.
We provide individualized services for families in the child welfare system with the goal of building a more stable and healthy future. Services include counseling for children and parents, parent education and support with employment and housing issues. At CII, we have a “whatever it takes” approach to keep children safe and families strong.
Adoption Support Services
We support children and families through the adoption process and beyond by providing specialized counseling services for children and training classes for parents. CII staff collaborates with case managers and therapists to support a successful adoption and stable, happy future.
We provide care management for families participating in our programs, ensuring coordinated care and a high quality of service to prioritize the needs of your family.
Behavioral Health & Wellness
We provide counseling to support social and emotional development for school aged children, with a special focus on the impacts of trauma. Our team of professionals - many of whom are from the same LA neighborhoods we serve - help to navigate and reduce symptoms of traumatic stress, improve coping skills and build resilience. Programs range from individual and family treatments to specialized support groups.
Witnessing gun violence is a traumatic experience for a child and can have long-lasting effects on their social and emotional health. We work with families to identify and treat trauma following exposure to gun violence. With support and resources, children can overcome trauma and continue their healthy development.
