Share Necessities is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization teaching mindfulness, yoga, and wellness to at-risk youth in South Central LA. We are committed to "Bringing Inner Peace to the Streets" with our youth programs, community center, and urban garden. Our youth education program and community center are dedicated to transforming the lives of individuals and families in Los Angeles’s most underserved communities. We believe change starts from the inside out, a healthy body and mind leads to a more positive life, which in turn builds a stronger community.
The I Make It Count program provides children and young adults with the training and experiences to live a well-balanced life. Our program inspires them to dream of new possibilities, create their own opportunities, and practice self-love. With our support and guidance, students are given an opportunity to find new life paths and realize their full potential.
Share Necessities’ Next Level CommUNITY Center was established in 2016, as a place where children can be heard, helped, guided, and protected in the heart of South Central Los Angeles. In the past two years, our center has brought a sense of hope and peace to what was once at the top of LAPD’s most violent neighborhoods list. We are grateful for our collaboration with Mayor Garcetti’s office of Gang Reduction and Youth Development, with their support we have have made great strides in creating a safe and thriving neighborhood. The Next Level CommUNITY Center is the heart of our work; transforming lives and building a resilient community. Our goal is to continue spreading a message of love and inclusion, and prosper the spirit of community bonding, service, and education. Please join us in supporting these children, who deserve the opportunity to experience positivity, opportunities, and hope!
