Donate to Children's Institute, Inc. (CII) today and support safe children, strong families, healthy community.

Your gift  to Children's Institute, Inc. today helps us serve more than 24,000 children and their families in the city's most challenged neighborhoods, and train more than 9,000 professionals in the realm of child development, mental health, and welfare. 

We provide services in some of Los Angeles's most densely populated and poorly resourced communities. And during times of economic stress and uncertainty, fragile children are at a particular risk. That's why our work -- and your support -- is more important than ever.

Every dollar you give will positively impact the lives of the children we serve. Together, with your help, we can profoundly change the future of our community's most vulnerable children and help them to lead safe, healthy, and productive lives.
