1 2012 Directory of Services for Homeless Youth in Los Angeles

2 The Everychild Foundation The Everychild Foundation s mission is to ease suffering of children in the Greater Los Angeles area whether due to disease, disability, abuse, neglect or poverty. Born in 2000 out of the belief that a group of women in Los Angeles together can award grants to make a serious difference in the lives of children in need, Everychild s funds are derived from member dues in lieu of fundraising events. As of November 2011, the Everychild Foundation has awarded over $8.5 million to Los Angeles area children s nonprofit service providers. In 2007, The Everychild Foundation Public Policy Committee was formed by committed foundation members who sought to ease the suffering of children through advocacy and education. Current committee policy interests include: homeless children and youth, juvenile justice, foster care issues as well as efforts to improve support for the needs of infants and toddlers ages 0-3. Trained committee members participate in community forums and workshops, educate local legislators on pressing needs of children, and work in committee with local leaders on practical and legislative policy solutions. The committee also prepares policy and opinion pieces for publication in print media including blogs, writes children s policy news for the membership, and offers policy and other support to community organizations who serve local children. This Directory and The Need Homeless Youth in Los Angeles Los Angeles County is home to nearly 9,500 unaccompanied homeless youth ages 24 and under each year. 1 Many are escaping abusive homes, emancipating from the foster care system or were raised on the street by homeless parents. A survey conducted by Children s Hospital Los Angeles and the Hollywood Homeless Youth Partnership in found that the mean total amount of time youth spent homeless was 2.8 years. 45% of respondents reported the presence of domestic violence between their parents or caregivers and a high incidence of alcoholism and drug abuse. 69% reported being a victim of child abuse. Most homeless youth have insufficient life skills, resources, community and emotional support to deal with the stresses of young adulthood. And once on the streets, the necessities of survival and poor coping skills drive homeless youth to compromise their health and wellbeing through high-risk behaviors including prostitution, increased substance use, illegal activity and violence. Homeless youth are faced with food insecurity, the lack of physical and emotional refuge, social isolation, and a heightened risk of criminal victimization and contracting life-threatening diseases. These crippling effects severely compromise the health and wellbeing of homeless youth and jeopardize their efforts to reconnect with society and succeed at education and employment. Without appropriate and compassionate intervention, homeless youth are destined to become caught in the criminal justice system, enter an irreversible cycle of chronic homelessness, total dependence on welfare, and permanent aversion to society or suffer an early death. The Los Angeles Public Library as a Safe Haven Not surprisingly, Teen Scape and other designated city library spaces aimed at teen users are often used as safe havens by unaccompanied homeless youth who are seeking a respite from the streets. Libraries offer mental and emotional escape from the streets, comfortable and secure physical environments, cultural links and access to printed and online resources. A trusting relationship with an adult is often critical to a homeless youth s ability to consider an offer of help. The librarian, often perceived as a safe adult, has an important opportunity to connect these youth to needed resources and services. Indeed, many local librarians have become trusted adults in the lives of these youth and have individually provided food, warm clothes and other items to needy teens. Until recently, however, the City Library system remained largely unconnected to the system of trained emergency and basic needs providers who serve these youth. Creation of the Directory In 2010, the Library, Everychild Foundation Public Policy Committee representatives and selected local nonprofits began to explore how the Library could participate in community efforts to connect these youth with needed services. This has resulted in the creation of this Directory for the benefit of the City Library, its branches and other identified safe havens or outreach agencies who encounter homeless youth in their work. 1 Rabinovitz, S., Desai, M., Schneir, A., & Clark, L.

Our Children LA Our Children LA (OCLA) is a Los Angeles area-based nonprofit organization formed by a small group of dedicated volunteers interested in promoting the well-being of local children through the development and maintenance of a publicly accessible website that aggregates and disseminates comprehensive information about the lives of Los Angeles children ages To be launched by 2013, Our Children LA intends to break down issue barriers by providing information and other tools which educate and build community support for local children s policy and programming needs, particularly those that reach or benefit children who are at-risk and/or underserved. The site will offer facts, data, news, reports, directories and other resources that may be used by nonprofits, elected officials, child advocates, funders, parents and others to benefit the lives of regional children ages 0-2, and understand or improve the programs that serve them or the policy and/or systemic constraints that operate to limit their potential.
