Job Type

Full Time




2121 West Temple Street

Organization Overview

There is a crisis in Los Angeles. For far too many children here, violence is a daily fact of life. With over 50,000

reports of child abuse/neglect filed annually– and more than 400 a day or17 an hour. Police respond to 43,000

reports of domestic violence, many involving children. When children are traumatized by violence, their chances of

growing up to lead healthy, productive lives are threatened. They are more likely to fail in school, enter the criminal

justice system, and repeat the cycle. At Children’s Institute (CII) we believe with the right intervention, the harmful

effects of violence can be mitigated and the cycle broken. At CII we serve more than 22,000 children and their

families in the city’s most challenged neighborhoods, and train more than 9,000 professionals in the areas of child

development, mental health and welfare. CII provides healing so traumatized children can recover and lead healthy

and fulfilling lives, while working to shape the field of children’s services through innovative research,

demonstration projects and professionally accredited training programs.
