Hello Kind Human Being

The Chilo Foundation is excited to have you visiting us.  In addition to the monthly outreach programs at San Julian Park, we are excited to introduce to you our #chilokids program where we take groups of 30-150 homeless children and their parents to explore the world outside of Downtown Los Angeles.  Our goal is to provide parent-child worthy experiences at places like Disneyland, and Frasier Park, where we hold a 3 day overnight retreat.

Louis Chavez started this movement to teach his family the gift that can only be received through the act of giving from yourself to a person in need of help.  With enough supplies he purchased earlier that day from Food for Less, he and his family proceeded to make a couple hundred sandwiches which they distributed in Skid Row later that day.   It was hard work, and not everyone was happy to receive a cold sandwich, but as Louis promised, the overwhelming feeling of gratitude from most of the people served was a gift beyond description.  Emboldened by their successes, the 7 heroes continued their mission and became consistent with arriving at the same location and the same time, and the little group started to get noticed and others began reaching out to assist them from both outside and within the community.  The group began to grow and started to change the menu and added toiletries.  This is still, today, the beginning of an extraordinary mission we will experience together!
