Review for Create Now, Inc., Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Los Angeles Youth Network has three shelters in Hollywood serving homelesss youth (12-17). We are licensed for 48 beds and serve about 1,500 youth per year. Our programs include an enrichment component and Create Now has been an incrediable resource for helping us find volunmteers who will donate their time and skills that help us introduce our youth the various elements of society.

Creat Now also introduces us to local cultural and arts programs that are available either for free or at a greatly reduced price.

WE LOVE CREATE NOW

I HAVE NO SUGGESTIONS THAT WOULD FALL INTO THIS CATEGORY.

Thanks for your comments Ron and for allowing us to serve your facility! We love working with the runaway, throwaway and homeless youth at LAYN because these kids really deserve a chance to find joy in their lives after the abuse and neglect they've had to endure. I'd like to point out that Create Now provides FREE programs for youth. Thanks to our Program Coordinator Ruby Medina's hard work, we gave out over 3,000 tickets to concerts, plays and other cultural events in 2010 and and didn't charge anyone a penny for our services, which included workshops in art, music, dance, writing, theatre and more. We look forward to increasing the services that we offer LAYN in the years to come!
