Building Emotionally Healthy Lives Since 1957
Our mission is to give children of all ages the skills, support and security they need to build emotionally healthy lives and become caring, responsible adults.
Our commitment to children includes their parents, whom we empower to create nurturing families. Together, we enrich our community and our world.

The Whole Child will be celebrating its 60th Anniversary this fall. Over the last 60 years The Whole Child has implemented several programs to addresses the needs of the children and families we serve.
The car seat safety program is a collaboration between The Whole Child and the County of Los Angeles Public Health, Division of Violence and Injury Prevention. Car Seat Safety Workshops are offered monthly (alternating between English and Spanish) and are open to the community. Families residing in LA County that show proof of low-income status are eligible to receive a FREE car seat after the workshop.
Workshops are generally offered the 3rd Thursday of the month from 10:30-12:30 at the Colima office. Families must call to reserve a space in the workshop (as there is a participant to technician ration that must be observed). Registrations can be made directly with Dee Leon, our Office Assistant by calling 562.236.4695.
