Leonard Hill Hope Center

At this moment, the state of foster care within Los Angeles is in the spotlight, particularly with regard to high-risk youth and teens. Lacking adequate resources, these youth have been locked in a spiral of systematic neglect that has resulted in a growing number of youth failed foster placements every year and insufficient care for children in crisis.

We are now building our newest program, the Leonard Hill Hope Center, to focus attention on these high-risk youth and to bring together all of the services urgently needed to keep them safe and help them
successfully transition into adulthood.

There are currently 18,000 children & youth in foster care in Los Angeles County.

If you have questions about the project, please contact us at

Support the Hope Center
900 foster children in Los Angeles County deemed high-risk
require placements with one-on-one supervision.


Teens in foster care are in crisis and it’s time they were given a way out. With the creation of our Leonard Hill Hope Center, foster youth who are struggling will have a resource that meets their unique and diverse needs, allowing them to achieve success and eventually independence. With your help, we have been able to complete the building that will house our services to help foster youth who are slipping through the cracks.

We are so close to opening our doors and I hope I can count on your continued support of the programs we plan to provide here to help care for all victims of abuse and neglect in Los Angeles.

With Love,
