Review for L.A. Goal, Culver City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm very proud of LA Goal. This year it was awarded the Joan Palevsky Award for Outstanding Nonprofits in the Arts by the prestigious California Community Foundation as part of its Unsung Heroes Award program.

Then LA Goal was chosen by the Mayor and City Council of Los Angeles to make a presentation to them for the City's Nonprofit Day in LA celebration.

Through many trials and tribulations, the staff and volunteers at LA Goal have brought much joy and learning to LA Goal's developmentally disabled members, showing them they have wonderful abilities as well.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching happiness fill the faces of the members

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the membership, because there is just so much need.

Role:  Board Member & Watched with amazement as the staff and volunteers performed their magic.
 

Review for L.A. Goal, Culver City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son has autism and has been a member of LA Goal for 17 years. It provides him with both social activities and work training. He's in the music program, the drama program, the art program and takes cooking classes there. He's taught office skills through the work program. Most of all, he can socialize with other people in a friendly and safe environment. It's a wonderful place.

Watching the growth and development of my son

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand their funding so that they could expand their programs to more members.

Role:  Client Served & I helped my son find a host of activities where he can feel safe and comfortable.
