Formerly the Los Angeles Orphans Home Society, Hollygrove has served as a home away from home for thousands of children who have been impacted by trauma, poverty and hardships. Our organization’s mission is to do “whatever it takes” to help children, strengthen families, build community and advocate for systems change to ensure that our families thrive. In Los Angeles, Hollygrove has deep ties to its neighboring communities and a long history of serving vulnerable children. Their main campus is in Hollywood and it serves two of the neediest areas, Hollywood/Metro and South L.A., where children living in poverty can rise to a staggering 80%. They provide services to over 720 children and their families each year on our campus, in the community and in their homes. Some of their widely successful programs include our Endless Summer afterschool program, summer day camp, Family Search and Engagement and Project Fatherhood parent groups. Hollygrove is supported by the generosity of its volunteers and community partners that have helped provide our families clothing, furniture, Halloween costumes, Thanksgiving meals and gifts for the holidays. At the root of Hollygrove’s vision for each child and family is to provide individualized care that cultivates hope, strength and the ability to thrive.
