I was trying to give my daughter Savannah everything I didn’t have. PLN has a comprehensive and family-centric approach. Knowing that Savannah has other nurturing caretakers there was really important for me. Para Los Niños was a great school, and they really became my family. To have consistent and high-quality childcare with nurturing teachers has been life-altering.

Give All Children a Chance to Reach Their Full Potential

Para Los Niños (PLN) was established over 42 years ago to provide a crucial safety net for the most vulnerable families in Los Angeles County. Today, as an integrated service organization, PLN brings together education, early intervention, mental health, public health, community engagement, and leadership development to serve the whole child, whole family, and communities in which families reside.

Serving over 10,000 people annually across 200 zip codes, the unique work of PLN is not able to operate without the support of individuals. You can be the difference in advancing the opportunity for thousands of children, youth, and families to thrive. Make your gift today.
