Kids-Net Los Angeles, Inc. seeks to enrich the lives of many children under the purview of the Department of Children and Family Services for dependency care in Los Angeles County. We bring people of conscience and faith together to engage in meaningful work in an all-volunteer corps and to experience the pride and warmth of community where real human need persists.
Kids-Net Los Angeles, Inc. is comprised of a diverse group of career professionals in the city; creative and energetic people who want to serve an important purpose. We are a 100% volunteer corps (no paid staff) committed to creating and delivering great programs that build character, promote positive self-image, and encourage healthy relationships. As you know, many kids “in the system” have borne the pain of abandonment, neglect and/or abuse, and scars remain in their hearts and minds. With all we’ve got, we strive to enlarge their capacities for resilience. Among the measures of our success are fostered youth who have grown-up to volunteer with us and even to lead.
Every year since 2008, we have produced a week-long summer camp for scores of kids ages 7-11, delivering an unforgettable all-expenses-paid, first-class sleep-away camp with non-stop participatory activities that enhance kids’ sense of self and safety. Virtually everyone finds being up above the city “in God’s country” to be The Best Week of the Year.
Our programs work with children in the L.A. County D.C.F.S. system, so Kids-Net LA takes all appropriate precautions to ensure their continued safety and privacy. All volunteers are carefully screened and trained prior to beginning their work with us to be aware of–and fully compliant with–our security policies.
