Magnolia Community Initiative In Los Angeles, California
The Magnolia Place Community Initiative is based on a hope and dream: That the 35,000 children and youth, especially the youngest ones, living in the neighborhoods within the 500 blocks of the Magnolia Catchment Area, south of downtown Los Angeles, will break all records of success in their education, health, and the quality of nurturing care and economic stability they receive from their families and community. The network of partners is working to unite the county, city and community to create sustainable change for families. It accomplishes this by promoting and strengthening individual, family and neighborhood protective factors through increasing social connectedness, community mobilization and access to needed services.
The Building Community, Building Hope film series is designed for audiences working with families and children to learn about some of the most promising innovations in keeping families thriving. Each short film in the series is accompanied by toolkits, discussion guides and resources and is made for you to use freely in your work and communications, as if it were your own.
