The Child and Family Development Center (CFDC) at Providence Saint John’s Health Center has been a beacon of hope for children and families facing mental health issues since 1962. Saint John’s Health Center Foundation is pleased to acknowledge a $325,000 gift from the Ahmanson Foundation that will focus on repairs and upgrades to the CFDC building, including privacy fencing, floors, lights and restroom upgrades.
The Ahmanson Foundation donation complements gifts that support the CDFC’s 2015 Partnerships for Families (PFF): Birth to One Program. Initiated in 2012 with a lead gift from The Atlas Family Foundation, Carrie Estelle Doheny Foundation, Bank of America Charitable Foundation, Inc. and a private foundation wishing to remain anonymous, the PFF: Birth to One program provides intervention services to new mothers at risk of child maltreatment through in-home therapy visits and connections to more than 15 community partners including Venice Family Clinic, Westside Family Health Center and St. Joseph’s Center.
We are grateful for the generosity of these foundations and look forward to continuing to offer vital resources to local children and families.
