The Everychild Foundation

Please join us Tuesday, March 26, at Skirball Cultural Centre for our Annual Everychild Foundation Luncheon and $1 Million Grant Presentation to Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services.

The grant will support the expansion of the organization’s suicide prevention program, which will now be called the Everychild Suicide Prevention Program. The program offers a full continuum of services to youth under 24 and their families. The project will include crisis intervention, therapy, support, training and education by turning the agency’s new Century City facility into the most state-of-the-art facility of its kind. The grant also covers the final capital expenses, including an upgraded crisis call/chat data system, software for data analysis, AV video conferencing equipment, a generator to run the crisis line during disasters and outages, 28 sound-proofed crisis line cubicles, and related furnishings.

For 75 years, Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services has provided quality mental health, substance use and suicide prevention services in Los Angeles communities where poverty or stigma limit access. It grew to become the first non-profit mental health clinic of its kind in Los Angeles County.

The Everychild Foundation is a women’s giving circle that relies on member contributions to fund a $1 million grant each year to a non-profit benefiting children. Founded by Jacqueline Caster in 1999, Everychild’s mission is to ease suffering of children in the Greater Los Angeles area whether due to disease, disability, abuse, neglect or poverty. This is the 19th consecutive award made by Everychild, bringing its overall community contributions to date to nearly $17 million, with more than one million children served.
