Richstone Family Center provides a range of child abuse prevention, family strengthening, and wellness programs for children ages 5-17 and their families at multiple sites in the South Bay and South Los Angeles.  A W. M. Keck Foundation grant will support a capital project to construct a new 5,000-square-foot building and remodel an existing 4,000-square-foot building on its campus in Hawthorne, which serves as its headquarters and is at capacity.  The project will also enable Richstone to expand its trauma-focused clinical treatment, wellness, and violence prevention programs and serve an additional 500 children and families.  Richstone currently has a growing list of families waiting to receive trauma-focused treatment services stemming from child abuse.  The communities it serves are among those with the highest number of children referred to the Department of Children and Family Services for abuse and neglect allegations, and have some of the highest concentrations of gang violence, drug-related crime, and poverty of any L.A. metro area.
