The Children’s Institute, Inc. (CII) is a safe space for children and their families to take steps towards bettering themselves. The Institute acknowledges that every child is unique, and that there is no singular way to provide support to a child in need. They aim to provide families in the most challenged communities of Los Angeles with a wide range of programs and services such as individual or group treatment, enrichment programs for children on subjects such as performing & visual arts, digital skills, health & wellness, cooking, and child care assistance. The organization (as the Big Sisters League) first opened the doors of its Koreatown location in 1952 and also operates two other locations, including one in Historic Filipinotown, another LA Promise Zone community. CII now serves more than 28,000 children and their families who reside in high-need, low-resource communities in Los Angeles through prevention, intervention, and treatment services.
