Logo for the Children's Institute has an orange letter C with two lowercase i's within the letter, meant to look like two people. To the right of the C in black text it reads "children's institute"

Children’s Institute supports children and families in healing from traumatic experiences. They work with 30,000 individuals in Los Angeles communities where decades of underinvestment and racist policies have resulted in poverty and lack of opportunities.

Children's Institute believes that real change starts with collaboration and trusted partnerships with community members and other local organizations. We offer high-quality early education and youth programs, counseling services, parenting supports, workforce and community leadership development, and advocacy for community investment where it is needed most.
