    COMMUNITY DEMOGRAPHICS

    COMMUNITY DEMOGRAPHICS

    100% of our participants are from low-income families in Los Angeles County with the majority living in South Los Angeles, Pacoima and San Fernando.  To have the greatest impact, we believe it’s essential to reach youth where they are.  That means all of our unique programming takes place at partner schools and juvenile camps throughout LA County.

    Nearly one in four households with children are headed by single parents. Almost half of residents are foreign-born, leading to high rates of linguistic isolation.

    Single-parent households represent nearly 18% of households with children in this community – and grandparents are the primary caregivers in approximately 10% of households with children (The Urban Institute’s Justice Policy Center).
