CLC Has a New Home!

July 17, 2017

CLC is thrilled to announce that we have moved into our brand-new headquarters in Los Angeles! At long last, our LA-based staff of nearly 300 are together in our beautiful new location just steps away from the Edelman Children’s Courthouse.

With the support of a grant from The Ahmanson Foundation, pro bono design services from Gensler, and our generous landlord Chase Partners LTD, the entire space has been renovated from top to bottom in a green and environmentally sustainable manner whenever possible, including solar panels and electric vehicle charging stations in our parking lot. The open design allows natural light to pour in, and staff are enjoying the large communal ‘café’ complete with freshly prepared food and beverages for sale, inviting seating and a barbeque area on our patio.

Our new office provides a youth space for our older clients to decompress/unwind, study, and utilize computer stations to research college admission requirements, vocational programs, summer internship opportunities, and resources for housing, health care and more. We also have a small in-house gym for staff who wish to incorporate more exercise into their work week. 

The new building includes a gorgeous boutique aptly named “Fresh Outfitters.” Designed, equipped and run by volunteers including CLC Board Members Jo Kaplan and Jennifer Perry, and in partnership with Children’s Action Network, the boutique will provide brand-new clothing for our transition-age youth population, including professional attire for job interviews. The boutique is happily accepting donations of new clothing and is looking for volunteers to help with staffing – for more information, please contact boutique@clccal.org.

The entirety of our new space was designed to promote collaboration and quiet reflection as well as the opportunity to re-energize throughout one’s day. This is particularly important given that as first responders working in a high stress field, our hard-working staff are vulnerable to compassion fatigue and burn out. 

In addition to The Ahmanson Foundation, Gensler, and Chase Partners LTD, CLC is grateful for the support of Condu Corporation, S & E Electric, RAS Consulting & Investigations, Michael E. Powers & Associations, Company Kitchen, Atlantic Relocation Systems, Charles Dunn, Bolyu, and American Communications Cable & Equipment, all of whom contributed to the successful completion of our beautiful new space.

We are excited to share our new home with you – remember to save the date and join us at our open house and fundraiser on Sunday, October 1, 2017 (details to follow)!
