Hours: M, W, F – 3:30 – 6:00 pm
The Place of South Pasadena is an early intervention program designed to reduce the risks associated with adolescents who are not otherwise involved in their community. Learn more About Us. The Place is staffed entirely by volunteers and funded by donations large and small from community members and friends of The Place.
Currently our space is provided for a nominal fee by the City of South Pasadena for a limited time. Our largest need is to find a permanent, dedicated space in which to operate….A Space for the Place.
In the meantime, we are in need of a few items for our daily operation. Please consider making a donation to offset our costs or donating snack items (teenagers eat a lot!). We are always looking for donations of food and money!
The place will re-open on September 7th from 3:30 – 6:00 pm!
Please come and join us as we will be participating in a community forum on March 31st for parents to discuss issues relevant to them and their teens.
Flier will be coming soon!

Our three BSW interns are wrapping up their final year internship. We have been sharing our interns with the South Pasadena Unified School District where they have provided small group and individual counseling to our young people, under the guidance and supervision of our Director Natasha Prime. They have grown close to our teens and have learned many important things about working with youth.
Next year, we will be working with MSW interns and continuing our partnership with the South Pasadena school district and CSULA
We continue to participate in the monthly Garden Workdays. We have been growing strawberries, onions, carrots, lettuce and broccoli.
