Greater Los Angeles Impact.

The Greater Los Angeles Chapter of Childhelp is proud to be the original Childhelp volunteer fundraising engine. Our annual events provide important outreach, and are opportunities to get involved and make a difference.

Los Angeles was the founding headquarters of Childhelp for more than three decades. Boasting an impressive ‘soldiers of the cause’ legacy, the Founders, many of their friends, and some original members of the Greater Los Angeles Chapter are still actively involved. Since its inception, the continuous and unparalleled support from the Southern  California community has enabled Childhelp to grow into a national organization. As individuals, we become voices of the cause. As a group, lives are changed and conditions improve.
