The Place would also like to give a huge thank you to the J. Mario Molina Family Foundation and Therese Molina for their supremely generous donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated and will help the South Pasadena teens tremendously!
The Place would like to thank the Bolton Foundation for their large grant to The Place. We would also like to thank Jacinda Meyer Toribio for nominating us for the grant. This is the largest donation The Place has received yet!

The Bolton Foundation chooses a select few nonprofit organizations every year to receive a generous grant. The Foundation is a charitable organization that donates to worthwhile local causes. This year The Place is honored alongside St. Anne’s, The Boys and Girls Club of Pasadena, and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
We at The Place are extremely honored to be selected. We were nominated by a parent of a teen who benefitted from our services and are tremendously grateful! There will be a ceremony held in December in which all teens and supporters are welcome to join us! More information will follow.
The Place would like to give a big thank you to everyone who came to our Second Annual Tacos in the Park Fundraiser! The event was a great success. We’d like to give a special shout-out to SPHS Principal Janet Anderson, Councilmember Robert Joe, and Mayor Diana Mahmud for coming out and supporting The Place.
Some tremendous tacos and incredible hibiscus-raspberry iced tea.
Tea was donated by local coffee shop, Charlie’s Coffeehouse.
Some teens and youth board members enjoying their tacos in the park.

The place will re-open on September 7th from 3:30 – 6:00 pm!
The Painted Brain has provided weekly art workshops at The Place. Many wonderful art pieces have been created – from Galaxy Jars to jewelry and collages.
