YOUR SPECIAL DAY

IMG_1759.jpg

Who is the program for?

Your Special Day was created to support children and youth whose parents have chronic debilitating conditions. These children often have to grow up faster and take on more responsibility than others their age. In underserved communities like Watts, these children may face additional adverse childhood experiences.

What are the goals and objectives of the program?

 

The Your Special Day program is designed to remind boys that their circumstances do not define them by providing them with a number of outlets and services to free them from stressors.

This program's objective is to free these bright, beautiful children from their typical stressors and give them an opportunity to take some time to live and laugh. 

Children who go through this program receive a number of support services ranging from special outings that free them from stressors to addressing the personal needs of each child through tailored support services and emotional support for children via our CRM section of the program.

We are currently seeking families living in the following cities: South Los Angeles, Watts, Compton, Inglewood, Gardena, Hawthorne, Huntington Park, and South Gate, California.
