Covenant House California
Covenant House California (CHC) is a nonprofit agency whose mission is to reach out to at-risk homeless youth living on the streets and offer them hope and opportunities to turn their lives around. CHC helps abused or neglected youth who have nowhere else to go. A large number have been thrown out of their homes, while others have aged out or left the foster care system with no family, no support system, and no one to turn to. Most youth are seeking a warm bed, a hot meal, and a clean change of clothes. CHC serves all homeless youth and at-risk youth between the ages of 18 to 21 with immediacy, absolute respect, and unconditional love. Since 1988, CHC has impacted the lives of more than 150,000 homeless youth from their Los Angeles and Bay Area facilities. Some of their core services include: food, shelter, crisis intervention, medical care, employment and educational training, job referrals, as well as other critically needed services.
CHC is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All services are offered for free. 80% of funding comes from private donors.
If you know of a youth that needs help, please call CHC at 1 (800) 999-9999.
Make A Wish - Greater Los Angeles
Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles was founded on the notion of “one child, one wish” in 1983. Since that time, they have brightened the lives of more than 7,800 children with a wide range of life-threatening medical conditions. This coming year they plan on granting their 8,000th wish. While medical technology and treatments have allowed the children they serve to lead longer lives, they continue to strive toward our ultimate mission of fulfilling a wish for every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in Los Angeles County.
Point Foundation seeks the partnership of philanthropic individuals, corporations, and foundations to supply financial support, professional guidance, and a network of contacts for undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students who are underprivileged and/or have been socially marginalized — principally by reason of sexual orientation, gender expression, or gender identity. Point recognizes that individuals may be socially marginalized or even abandoned by family, friends, and society because of their sexual orientation, gender expression, or gender identity. Yet these lives should not be further disadvantaged as they prepare for the future.
Point also attempts to identify students who have exceptional financial needs that would require personal assistance for personal success. Point believes that these individuals would benefit from a support system that facilitates their preparation for the future to help ensure a lifetime of effectual leadership and exceptional productivity. By identifying and supporting these scholars, Point hopes to provide a greater level of acceptance, respect and tolerance within future generations for all persons, regardless of sexual orientation, gender expression, or gender identity. Additionally, Point believes in honoring both the scholars and the donors who are investing in the future. Therefore, Point honors the donors, if they so choose, by creating a legacy named after themselves, or as a memorial for a loved one. This arrangement ensures their personal identification.
