If passion can be used as the measure of a company's success and dedication, it would be difficult to find a company more committed to their mission than BREATHE LA. The unwavering devotion they bring in their desire to educate largely under served segments of the population as well as continuing education for the medical community is unparalleled. There is plenty of historical, good reason to see how this company has survived 100+ years and it is reasonable to assume they will be around for a great many more; because passion is indeed an effective unit of measurement.

Great wonderful organization. I volunteered for Lung Power Day with Breathe California of Los Angeles County. This is a wonderful organization that helps children and families manage their asthma. It's amazing to be part of an incredible organization and to contribute towards the great work they do in our community. Very rewarding!

I volunteered/interned at Breathe LA over the summer, and it was a very gratifying experience. The people I worked with were welcoming, professional, and very passionate. It was a great experience, one that I am happy I had and would love to have again. They work hard to make their message heard, and would do anything for their cause.

I've worked with Breathe LA on two separate occasions, one as an event manager for their annual Sparkle event and as a third party making a donation for one of their charity drives/auctions to raise funds. I have also toured their offices in LA and have met and worked with several members of their staff. Breathe LA is an amazing charitable organization doing great and much needed work for the city of Los Angeles in addition to having an outstanding staff team! Every person I've worked with or spoken to has been very helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with! Breathe LA is by far one of the best non-profits I have worked with by means of their purpose/ cause and quality of individuals making it all happen! 5-stars for sure!

I have volunteered for BREATHE LA's programs in the past, and my view was that the staff was very professional, kind and informative. The event where I saw BREATHE LA was at White Memorial Hospital, and they participated in a health fair attended by low income, mostly older people, many who did not speak English. The BREATHE LA staff spoke to visitors in English and Spanish, and provided information and materials.

Judging from the amount of revenue coming in and going out, I would state that it is true that the management at Breathe LA are very well paid. Are they worth it, that is the question. We know a few and as in most non-profits the majority are climbers wanting to go into public office of some type.
