Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have made some changes to our ongoing programs (as of 04/2020):
- our spring & summer free clinic events have been cancelled at this time to ensure we do our part to help flatten the curve.
- the 2020 Steps For Change Scholarship application deadline has been extended to May 25th, 2020 to accommodate student lifestyle changes due to widespread school closures.
At a time of universal uncertainty, we hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy.
We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols set by public health officials.
We are in this together.
our focus remains on the mission that unites us everyday: to improve the health and wellbeing of those who need it most.
this time, our frontline healthcare heroes need them most.
these are our brave doctors, nurses, midwives, hospital staff who are exposed in high risk areas to care for our loved ones.
to strengthen the immunity of our brave healthcare workers, we've delivered herbal tea bags & bottles of vitamin c to our local hospitals. we thank them for their efforts, sacrifices, and commitment during these uncertain times.

With the pandemic now in the most critical phase in the US, hospitals are experiencing shortages in medical supplies and protective equipment. Locally, we've found a way to help by donating vitamin c, medical isolation kits, surgical masks, and nitrile exam gloves to protect our frontline heroes.
Hospitals: LAC-USC Medical Center, Veteran Affairs Hospital, USC Verdugo Hills Hospital, and Beverly Hospital.
Options for Learning Donation
This May, we have donated 1,400 to Options for Learning at the request of Senator Susan Rubio. These high-quality reusable face masks will be provided to child care providers who play a critical role in caring for the children of essential workers especially during this pandemic. Thank you for all that you do to keep the children safe and cared for!
As the pandemic stretches on, there is much more to be done & you can help.
