WHO WE ARE
Richstone Family Center is one of the most progressive centers for trauma-focused treatment and the prevention of child abuse in Los Angeles County and the first Southern California recipient of a Blue Ribbon Affiliate designation from Parents as Teachers, recognizing Richstone's commitment to providing quality services to kids
and their families.
Richstone’s programs protect children by building stable and healthy families and decreasing violence in families, schools and communities.
We provide a safe-haven for those that might otherwise never receive appropriate treatment.
Demand for programs in our high-need communities continues to grow- last year child abuse cases in the city of Hawthorne increased by 30% and the region saw an 18% increase in reported domestic violence cases.
WHO WE SERVE
Children and families from communities in L.A. County’s South Bay and neighboring South L.A. areas
