PARTNERS FOR CHILDREN SOUTH LA

The Partners for Children South LA is a collaborative effort led by seven agencies designed to decrease child welfare involvement for children ages zero to five by reducing risk and strengthening families.

Most Recent TAFF grant: $80,000 in June 2016
The Atlas Family Foundation has been a funding partner of the Partners for Children South LA since 2009.

The initiative takes a public health approach based on prevention, early identification and intervention of children and families with significant vulnerability, and intensive services for families with the greatest need. Within that framework, there are particular sub-populations at higher risk for poor long-term outcomes, and whom we believe are critical to breaking the generational cycles of systems involvement. One such population is children born to teenage parents, especially those recently emancipated from or still wards of the formal child welfare system. The other is children zero to five in kinship care (both formal and informal, such as grandparents, aunts, etc.), whose guardians are often not equipped to deal with their needs.

The Atlas Family Foundation grant supports the Initiative’s quality improvement strategy, which builds the individual, organizational and collective capacity of participants from the seven agencies representing all the domains relevant to positive outcomes for children, and aligns their work implementing a comprehensive early childhood system of care for young children in South Los Angeles.

“Our giving started more broadly, helping in the community. Then we realized if we got to the root of the problem earlier on – more in the area of prevention – we would be more effective. As things continued to evolve, we found there was a need to go even younger. That’s how we arrived at early childhood development.”

– Mindy Stein, philanthropist and chairman of Tikun Olam Foundation
