Mission:

The Children’s Lifesaving Foundation (fondly known as the CLF!) is a non-profit, 501( c)(3) organization, dedicated to transforming the lives of homeless and at-risk children and families in Los Angeles through academic, social and domestic support. 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 Platform 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, or helping their children apply for college in the coming year. These platforms are supported by Camp4All, our highly successful summer camp, Care through College, an after-school tutoring and educational program, and the Vita Network, which provides ongoing, personal assistance to our core group of families.

With out Maria D'Angelo and the CLF my family would still be living in shelters and hotels. They showed us compassion and kindness when the world was kicking us down. They gave me and my sister a brighter future keeping us away from turning to the wrong decisions by keeping us busy with positive activities. I remember going to Disneyland and the circle x ranch. I still talk about it and I an 28 years old now. I feel as if I owe my life to them. I love you guys and an so glad you touched our lives and continue to reach out to others in need. Thank you.

I have been working as a volunteer with the Children's Lifesaving Foundation for over 10 years and absolutely love their work and their mission. Maria, Francesca and Sean ( who founded and run the program) are so wonderful to all the children and the families that are involved with our program - it's truly inspiring. {They are also really great to their volunteers, like me. I've always felt like family there.}

The work of the Children's Lifesaving Foundation is so powerful and important. I have been fortunate to get to know Maria, Francesca, and Sean and so many of the families as a volunteer with CLF and am grateful that they have been able to continue making a difference!

I have been involved with numerous non-profits through the years and the CLF is one of my favorites. I love being able to interact with the people that I am serving and to see them grow and prosper. The CLF is a family affair. From the wonderful D'Angelo/ McCaffery family that runs the foundation to the incredible families that the foundation serves, the CLF is an incredible testament to the power of family. I am honored to be able to serve such a wonderful organization and look forward to working with the CLF for many years to come!

The Children's Lifesavig Foundation is an amazing organization who invited students to various summer activities which they hosted. The activities they provided for our students was an unforgettable and invaluable experience which the students will never forget. CLF is making such a positive impact on the lives of young people in Los Angeles.
