Founded in 1906, Children’s Institute (CII) is one of the oldest and largest agencies in Southern California dedicated to serving children and families who have been exposed to adversity and persistent poverty. Its services include, but are not limited to, operating early childhood education sites, school-based counseling, adoption support services, behavioral health and wellness, and parent training.


To support basic needs assistance in response to COVID-19, which include infant care products, groceries, household cleaning supplies, educational materials, technology to access virtual mental health and educational services, personal hygiene products, masks, and other essentials.

We are grateful for the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles’s ongoing support of our mission to transform the lives of children exposed to adversity and poverty. Now more than ever, the generosity of our funders ensures we can respond to the needs of Los Angeles’s most vulnerable families during this unprecedented crisis.
