Our best hopes for the future rest on how well we nurture our children today… Because a child cannot grow up twice

For youth in our community who are struggling with gang violence, poverty, homelessness or abuse – the experience is harrowing, and seems insurmountable. But last year, El Nido made a difference in the lives of over 15,000 youth and their family members, helping them find a path out of poverty and plan a bright future.

With the generosity of our donors, these teens have overcome abuse, gang violence, homelessness to graduate school and begin a brighter future…Click the video below to learn more of their stories:

A donation to El Nido means that we can prevent child abuse and neglect and strengthen vulnerable families, and together, we will make Los Angeles a better place to live for all of us.  To make a donation to a specific program or need, please leave a note in the form below, or contact us at (818) 830-3646 x424.
