Now in existence for more than 25 years, The Los Angeles Trust for Children’s Health (The L.A. Trust) remains steadfast in its commitment to serve the 580,000 students of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and their families, providing them with access to physical, oral and behavioral health services, in addition to wellness supports to help them thrive. Our work is grounded in the philosophy that health and wellness are integral to student achievement; school-based health centers have a critical role to play in access to services, and effective community partnerships are a powerful tool for systems change.
On the evening of Thursday, June 21, 2018, The L.A. Trust will host its annual Summer Solstice Garden Party, a fundraiser to raise awareness of and financial support for our mission to improve student health and increase readiness to learn through access, advocacy, and programs. The event will take place Thursday, June 21 from 6-10 p.m. at the Los Angeles River Center. Highlighting an evening of summer fun under the stars will be an artisanal buffet, cocktails, live music, dancing, roaming magicians, a silent auction and other activities.
