Breaking the cycle of homelessness,
one child at a time
Long Beach has one of the highest homeless populations among large cities in the U.S. One-fifth are under the age of 6.
of residents in Long Beach live below the poverty line. The average family consists of a single mother in her late 20s and two children, one or both under the age six.
Homeless children have triple the rates of emotional and behavioral problems such as anxiety, depression, withdrawal and aggression.
Many children are exposed to domestic violence, substance abuse and neglect. They experience health problems four times more often than other kids.
We desire to be a tangible support system for young children and their families who suffer from crisis. Through nurture, education and support, we hope to help bring restoration, stability and empowerment.
