Review for SHIELDS for Families, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

SHIELDS for Families serves families in very high-need communities with a holistic philosophy, asking people what they want and need first, responding to those requests and helping people navigate the overwhelmingly large "systems in LA. They can often meet family needs by calling on housing, substance abuse, cousneling, child care and other services wihtinthe agency, but theyare also a great collaborator, working as a valued partner with County and City government and other non-profits. The Executive Director, Kathy Icenhower, is a wonderful leader and the staff is excellent! In my experience as an evaluator and consultant with many non-profits in LA County, they are tops!
