This is #chilokids What We Do and Who We Are

Why we care to uplift the next generation with joy?

 Through team building and service projects, we entertain our little guest on monthly bases by bringing together the likeminded volunteers that assist with activities, games, jumpers a kindness lesson and much more. Its admirable to witness such joy in the children and it simply reaffirms that we are there to do Gods work. Also we  fund our family time experiences by returning 100% of all the donations into these special outtings we put together with volunteers and with the generous donations our donors contribute. We are here because of our volunteers and because we have people that dont mind giving us the funding to take these children to amazing field trips. Our volunteers then  make positive contributions to children who are homeless and currently stay in skidrow. We believe that these experiences will imprint the lives of children by giving them the opportunity to make new memories that will imprint their hearts forever. We want to bring joy to a  area in Los Angeles that is so devoid of love and for children along with their families to have to deal with the challenges the community faces, is a complete heart break to see this happening. 

For a moment image and close your eyes! Then see your children coming home from school having them walk through the tough streets of skidrow not understanding why he is the only child in the school that does not have a safe place to call a home. Its heart breaking so please know that your donation will be buying the smiles of many children and impacting the lives of all the families that participate from the union rescue mission.
