Hi friends, each summer Childbirth Connection Foundation sponsors several community outings that are child-oriented. These outings are great opportunities for the parents and children to have a fun day by meeting new friends and socializing with other families in our organization.

Here is what is scheduled to have this summer. All the details will be later posted.

June 11th Los Angeles Zoo outing

July 23th Hansen Dam Aquatic Center

August 11th Splash Park at Panorama City Recreation Center

October 27th Annual Pumpkin Patch at Tapia Bros.



It is such a pleasure to write about our partnership with the Sociology Department at California State University Northridge. We began this relationship in 2007 and we have been utilizing students in our internship program as mentors and tutors to children who are in need of a positive role model in their lives.

Take a look at just a few of these special people under “Mentor Spotlight” on our website.


Westland_School_1Once again we want to thank Westland School  for participating in our Adopt a Family Thanksgiving Partnership.

2014 marked our 22nd year of Westland School partnering with our organization to provide families in need with a Thanksgiving dinner and much more. Over and over our family members express their gratitude for being remembered during a difficult time of the year. Although we all look forward to the holidays, it is often a time of extra stress and burden for families who are struggling to make ends meet and who are often disconnected from their own families.

During the holiday season it has become a priority over the years to let others who are less fortunate to know how much we care. Westland staff and parents take time out of their busy schedules at a very hectic time of the year to put together a feast for individual families along with other needed items and often gifts!

In 2014, Westland School fed over 100 people with all of their generous donations. Thank you! Your commitment to taking care of others is truly inspiring!

Over the years the Foundation has had the privilege of getting to know extended family members of the children we work with.  Often, we could not have the kind of contact necessary to assist families if grandparents, aunts and uncles didn’t get involved.  Meet one such family that we have enjoyed getting to know over […]

Santa John

June 19, 2012

I have been volunteering being Santa for The Childbirth Connection for the past three years. Each year has been very interesting and fulfilling for me. I remember the first year I was a bit nervous.
