Crisis Intervention Program 

Friends of SCLARC Programs

Golf Tournament-- Friends of SCLARC, Inc. understands that being a good community partner not only helps to better people's lives, but it also enhances the quality of life within the community. Our annual Friends of SCLARC Golf Tournament and Dinner has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars which we dedicate to making investments in people's lives. What is yielded from the funds raised at the tournament are empowered families who are more knowledgeable and better able to advocate, individuals who are supported during times of crisis and the ability to give SCLARC consumers access to enhanced resources when they find themselves faced with emergency situations.

Thanksgiving Food Baskets--For more than 20 years, The Los Angeles Drifters has donated holiday food baskets to South Central Los Angeles Regional Center’s neediest families during the season of thanks; giving them the ability to prepare holiday meals for which they are immensely grateful. Friends of SCLARC now solicits corporate and community partners to include a $50 gift card in each basket.

Christmas Give-A-Way--Friends of SCLARC helps to make the Holidays special for children with developmental disabilities and their families by providing food, clothing and toys due in large part to the generosity and support of such companies as The Walt Disney Company, Hasbro and Jakks Cares.

Backback Give-A-Way-- Friends of SCLARC, with the very generous donation from Dr. Marie France Francois, sends children back to school each year prepared and ready to learn via our Backpack Giveaway. The goal is to make it easier for South Central Los Angeles Regional Center families to send their children into the classroom with the necessary tools and items to succeed in completing class and homework. The backpacks are filled with notebook paper, pencils, sharpeners and art supplies. SCLARC consumers ranging in age from 5 to 19-years-old benefit as do their typfically functioning siblings. In this way, Friends of SCLARC strives to promote academic excellence to the entire family. And although our primary donor's contribution has sent many children into the new school year with a brighter outlook. Read more
