Designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, CII’s new Watts campus will break ground in early 2020, and house critical therapeutic programs and a variety of supports for children and families including:

  • Individual and group counseling

  • Community meeting space

  • After-school and youth development activities

  • Childcare

  • Art and computer classes

  • Parenting workshops

  • Project Fatherhood sessions

The building will also be home to the Watts Gang Task Force, which has brokered peace in the community for nearly 15 years, along with the LAPD Community Safety Partnership, a nationally recognized model for relationship-based policing.

Breaking ground in early 2020 with a target completion date of 2021.

CII's new Watts Campus will be located at E 102nd St & Success Ave
