Since 1972, The Jeffrey Foundation has set the standard for therapeutic child care, recreation and special programs for children with special needs in an inclusive setting. There is no other organization in Los Angeles County that provides the full range of services and provides care to those who need it most – and yet who are least able to afford the quality care they require.
Most of those we serve have physical or developmental disabilities including muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, autism, epilepsy, and mental retardation. They range in age from 6 weeks through 18 years old. All of our children, whether typical or atypical, are classified as “at-risk,” coming from areas of Los Angeles County that account for 64% of Los Angeles’ total poverty population. The Jeffrey Foundation’s goal is to help the children it serves to develop to the maximum extent of their capabilities.
