Poverty, violence, unemployment, substandard schools, lack of fresh food and options for health care… When you are born into the 90011 zip code, the odds are stacked against you in a thousand ways that you can’t control. At A Place Called home we understand that “it takes a village” to raise a child to overcome that kind of adversity and we are committed to working in partnership with the parents and families of our members– after all, we share a common goal, which is to protect, nourish, guide and support the young people in our community so they can go on to have healthy lives and be contributing citizens.
Parents need support, too. We see them working hard to overcome poverty and adversity, doing their best to keep food on the table, a roof over their family’s heads, and their children focused and on track – it can be overwhelming. So, we offer classes to enrich their lives, improve their health, and provide skills and tools and empowerment so the parents can take an active role in making positive change… at home, in the community, in their own lives and in the lives of their children.
