Mission Statement

The Children’s Lifesaving Foundation (CLF) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to transforming the lives of underserved, BIPOC youth and houseless families living in shelters and transitional housing in Los Angeles through a unique approach of providing outdoor education through amazing Summer and Surf Camps, inspiring Holiday Events and awesome Field Trips in and around Los Angeles, and Educational Assistance and Scholarships for youth through to college-age. We are also currently providing Emergency Funding during the COVID-19 Crisis to the families in our Vita Network. Over 85,000 underserved, primarily BIPOC and Latinx youth and families have been served since 1993.


CLF OVERVIEW: Our services are centered on three key, core platforms: LIVING, LEARNING & ENRICHING: The Living program is an integrated approach to domestic support. The Learning program fosters hope in students striving to achieve their goals. The Enriching program is comprised of activities and events to provide a sense of normalcy and community throughout the transitional experience for the whole family, whether the experience is a moving from a shelter into a new home, or apartment, & helping their children apply for college. These programs are supported by Camp4All, our highly successful summer camp, and the Vita Network, which provides ongoing, personal assistance to our core group of families.
