Since 1995, thousands of LA’s BEST students  have thrived from Children’s Lifesaving Foundation hikes, outdoor education and holiday programs that all children should be privileged to afford.   The extraordinarily high quality of interactions between CLF staff and children leave each participant feeling that he/she matters and is special.  Their durable lead angel, Maria D’Angelo, tirelessly raises the bar to support more communities every year.  LA’s BEST is proud and grateful to be included.”

Carla Sanger CEO & President, LA's BEST (Better Educated Students of Tomorrow)
