A Community Hub

Research shows if you can reach kids during those most impressionable years, you are able to set them on a path toward being productive citizens, which is why Partners for Children South L.A never turns a family away. 

To do so, the nonprofit hopes to raise $250,000 to hire two new staff members and furnish its new South L.A. offices to become a hub for the community and technically outfitted with the adequate resources to serve the neighborhood.

The organization’s ultimate goal is to turn its network into a replicable model to serve other high-risk communities in addition to South LA. 

“This is taking that leap, ramping up the organization to be properly staffed so we can start thinking about replication, so we can take this effort throughout L.A. County to serve even more children and families in need,” says Executive Director Liza Bray.


The mission of Partners for Children South L.A. is to improve access to high-quality healthcare, early education and family supports for the youngest and most vulnerable children in South Los Angeles.

Looking back and speaking of PCSLA, Julia offers this bit of insight for others who might find themselves in seemingly insurmountable situations: “Always remember, there is help,” she says. “And there are people out there who want to help you. When things go bad, it’s natural to feel frightened and alone. But I’m here to tell you — you are not alone.
