Children's Institute, Inc. (CII) helps children who have been affected by violence in their homes or communities. Since 1906, CII has been serving at-risk children and families throughout Los Angeles County. The agency provides healing and support so traumatized children can recover and lead healthy lives. We work to lead children away from tragic outcomes and on the path toward opportunity and achievement.
CII serves more than 15,000 children and families each year through our treatment, prevention, early care and education, and community services programs. We also work to inform the larger child welfare field through our research and professional training.
Now in our 102nd year, CII is one of the premier children's service organizations in Los Angeles. With seven service sites, 25 direct service programs, 300 employees, and hundreds of volunteers, CII is making an impact on thousands of young lives in Los Angeles' most devastated communities.
