Para Los Niños is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that serves impoverished children and their families throughout Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties. Para Los Niños’ services include child development and education, a Charter School, child abuse prevention and intervention, after-school enrichment, and youth diversion and delinquency prevention. In addition, we offer comprehensive family support, which includes counseling, parenting classes, English-as-a-second-language classes, mental health counseling, and youth workforce services. All children’s services at Para Los Niños are coordinated with integrated, comprehensive assistance for the entire family. Families are served in the context of their community. Once critical needs for food, clothing and shelter have been met, Para Los Niños works with families to address deeper concerns and underlying issues. By integrating a full range of assistance, we make it possible for families to obtain the help they need without hours of traveling and waiting. </li></ul>
