OUR IMPACT: What We've Achieved

  • Over 85,000 at-risk youth and homeless parents served since 1993.

  • Over 55 college scholarships have been awarded to deserving, at-risk teens all across Los Angeles.

  • Our Camp for All Program combines a unique way of allowing homeless families and very at-risk and low-income LAUSD students to breathe life back into their everyday existence-and we have served well over 75,000 homeless & at-risk youth through this program.

  • The CLF has moved and transitioned 50 homeless and highly at-risk families into new homes, and hundreds of lives of at-risk and very low-income families have been transformed with new living quarters and financial aid.

  • It is our goal that each child in our core Vita Network group of families get as close to their own dreams as possible through our programs. We try to help to instill in them the confidence and belief in themselves, which hopefully helps them to overcome any racial, socio-, or economic barriers they may genuinely experience.

  • Hundreds of amazing, memorable field trips to movies, museums, sporting events, shows, concerts, the circus and outdoor recreational camps have been provided to homeless and at-risk you and their families in LA county.

  • Over One Million Dollars in IN-KIND Donations of TOYS, NEW CLOTHING, FURNITURE, TOILETRIES and GIFTS have been successfully distributed.

  • The CLF has been nationally recognized, appearing on "the Steve Harvey Show", in "People" Magazine, and won the LA Business Journal "Non-Profit of the Year" Award, bee commended by two Mayors of Los Angeles, and our founder Maria D'Angelo was one of ten L'Oreal Paris Women of Worth, and has won The Open Hearts Foundation Award, the Malibu Dolphin Award, and many others.
