Our Mission

Saving lives through education, engagement, and partnerships.


The challenges we face today are daunting, yet we are more committed than ever to make a difference and improve resilience in Los Angeles. Did you know that 76% of students in LA Unified Schools are considered at-risk and low income (Title 1)? Title 1 funding in Los Angeles has declined by more than $60 million in just the past 18 months. Beyond students, more than 500,000 people have been identified as “at-risk” for threats such as fire and earthquake in L.A. No one agency can solve these issues, but working together, we can help build a more resilient community.

Please Help us Save Lives! We Can’t do it Without You

Meet Erica. Her family lives in a small home in the flatlands of the San Fernando Valley. After completing our Junior Fire Inspector program, Erica was able to teach her family how to escape safety in the event of fire, ensured her home had working smoke alarms, and arranged for semi-annual drills that included the entire family. We’re reaching thousands of families via young people like Erica.
