Heart of Los Angeles

In neighborhoods overrun by poverty and crime, Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) invests in youth to build stronger communities. The organization started 25 years ago with just a handful of kids in a dilapidated gym. Today, HOLA serves over 2,300 youth from ages 6 to 24. An impressive 98% of HOLA’s seniors graduated from high school, and over 95% now attend college.
