"The fun for me in collaboration is, one, working with other people just makes you smarter; that's proven." Lin-Manuel Miranda
Every summer, we host a picnic for current and former foster youth. We've gone to Griffith Park and taken them hiking, on the Merry-Go-Round and making tie-dye shirts. And we've gone to Kenneth Hahn Park and played games including Pictionary, egg toss and hula hoop.
On the Saturday before Thanksgiving, we host a Thanksgiving Brunch to bring the community together in the spirit of gratitude.
Every December, Stepping Forward LA hosts a Holiday Party for our entire community. The holidays can be a particularly difficult time for foster youth, so the Holiday Party provides them with presents, holiday sweets, and a community to celebrate with.
