Children’s Institute's Otis Booth Campus Opening

Today I was pleased to participate in the ribbon cutting ceremony of the Children’s Institute’s new Otis Booth Campus located in Historic Filipinotown.

The Children's Institute has a long history of dedicated service to our most vulnerable, at-risk children and their families. The new 48,000 square foot facility will allow them to provide services to more than 5,000 families through its programs, health services, and performing arts opportunities.

There's an old African proverb that says "it takes a village to raise a child." Because of the Children's Institute and its supporters, there are more children who are being raised to be healthy, to be happy, and to fulfill their promise as members of this village we call Los Angeles.
