We are proud to bring awareness and support to Hollygrove.


ABOUT HOLLYGROVE

Hollygrove is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help children,

strengthen families, build community, and advocate for systems change to ensure

that our families thrive.


There is an Escalating Need:

• According to the Children's Defense Fund, a child in California is abused or

neglected every 4 minutes

• In Los Angeles County alone, 900,000 children live in poverty

• Of the 100,000 foster children in California, 35,000 are in LA County

• Public funding does not cover the complex needs of traumatized and at-risk

children and families


HISTORY

Hollygrove was founded in 1880 as the Los Angeles Orphans Home Society. Since its inception, Hollygrove has cared for more than 20,000 orphaned and emotionally wounded children who were in crisis and had nowhere else to turn. In 1912, Hollygrove moved from downtown LA to the “country” - a 3.5-acre campus in Hollywood donated by Senator Cornelius Cole, adjacent to the Paramount lot.


In 1935, nine-year old Marilyn Monroe came to live at Hollygrove.


Until 2005, Hollygrove provided residential treatment for abused or neglected children in the foster care system. Some were born addicted to drugs, experienced sexual and physical abuse, and had witnessed violence at home or in their neighborhoods. Hollygrove provided a warm, family type environment where children could receive quality therapeutic care.


Today, Hollygrove provides intensive counseling and crisis intervention services to children in their homes, at school and on our campus in Hollywood. We are nationally recognized for programs that: treat trauma; promote permanency and safety for foster children; help stressed caregivers parent effectively; promote healthy attachments; and strengthen families to effectively manage challenging behaviors.  Innovative programs relying exclusively on private funding include: Camp Hollygrove; Endless Summer therapeutic after school program; Project Fatherhood; and Family Finding.
