Impacting Hearts Foundation
Impacting Hearts is a non-profit 501(c)(3) mentoring organization. We are an entirely volunteer run non-profit organization dedicated to building relationships and mentoring youth for a brighter future, full of hope and love. 100% of all donations go directly to the organization. We listen, talk and engage in activities with our youths so that we may build trusting relationships to encourage them and give them hope for a better tomorrow. We have approximately 20 to 30 youth attending Youth Club Night (YCN) every Thursday night.
Los Angeles has the highest percentage of foster children across the nation. There are over 21,000 foster children in the Los Angeles County. The majority of the youths in the County's care have been bounced around from one home to another. By the time that they are emancipated at age 18-19, they've been in 17-22 different foster homes. A third of these kids are in jail or prison within the first year they're emancipated and another third end up homeless. Only one percent of these kids go to college.
We are committed to being involved in their lives. They don't care what we say or what we know until they know we care.
