This project is operated by the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law, Inc., a sister program of the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law Foundation, the entity that engages in legal advocacy and major litigation on behalf of vulnerable and marginalized individuals and groups.

The program offers a range of services, including case management, educational testing and placement, referrals to no-cost health care providers, drug and alcohol prevention programs, family reunification services, living skills and leadership workshops, free legal and immigration services, and cultural activities. The program focuses on Los Angeles inner-city homeless children, and has a history of providing services to immigrant and refugee children, including unaccompanied minors.
