In addition to the financial support provided by your purchase, we would like to put you in touch with our partners to help you remain actively involved with their efforts, and let you know about upcoming events you can participate in along with other caring community members.
Street Poets harnesses the healing power of poetry and music to save lives, create community and transform culture. Working to break the cycle of violence in the lives of at-risk and incarcerated youth, the organization helps to awaken them to their gifts and builds creative community, bringing youth, adults and elders of diverse backgrounds into deep transformational relationships.
The Mission of Youth Mentoring Connection is to awaken at-risk youth to their power, unique gifts and purpose by matching them with caring adult mentors and placing that “match” within a structured group dynamic that provides the resources youth need to reach productive, conscious adulthood. They further seek to awaken society to the needs, promise and value of this overlooked population, and inspire young people bring their gifts back into their communities.
The People Concern empowers the most vulnerable among us to rebuild their lives. As one of Los Angeles County’s largest social services agencies, they provide a fully integrated system of care – including mental and medical health care, substance abuse services, and permanent supportive housing – tailored to the unique needs of homeless individuals, survivors of domestic violence, challenged youth, and others who have nowhere else to turn.
We are always on the lookout for more partners who want to join forces to make a sustainable difference in our community.
If you are a local organization - we'd love to talk about how we could work together.
