Brightened the futures of students

Approximately 95% of our students graduate high school and nearly 80% go on to college, which are among the highest rates in Northwest Pasadena, CA.

Transformed the neighborhood

For over 35 years, we have served a 12-block target area in Northwest Pasadena, CA. Centered at Howard St. and Navarro Ave., the location was once called “blood corner,” but with decades of love, dedication and service, we have improved conditions for kids, students, families and our community.
