A Place Called Home
A Place Called Home was our first charity partner ever! Co-Founder John Gornik, grew up in Los Angeles and had known about the amazing work that A Place Called Home was doing, which is how they first connected with APCH. Founders Greg and John reached out to APCH with high hopes, and executive director Jonathan Zeichner gave them a shot. They pitched their idea to APCH and after a lot of questioning, APCH absolutely loved the idea. They truly gave us our first opportunity to make a difference and we owe them big!
We partnered with A Place Called Home because of the amazing work they were doing in South Central LA. Keeping kids safe, educated, and healthy is a main objective there and we love working with them. We Routinely visit APCH and have done multiple bracelet making classes with the kids of APCH. The staff, facilitates, a most importantly the kids are all fantastic. We are extremely proud to be their partner.
A Place Called Home is a safe haven in South Central Los Angeles where underserved youth are empowered to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives through programs in education, arts, and well-being and are inspired to make a meaningful difference in their community and the world.
