Break out the Birthday Candles; Hillsides Celebrates Its Centennial
Date:12/31/2012

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 31, 2012

Hillsides, a premier provider dedicated to improving the overall well-being and functioning of vulnerable children and families, is celebrating a major milestone in 2013 -- it is turning 100 years old. Over the course of a century, Hillsides has provided quality, progressive and collaborative programs and services to more than 110,000 individuals in Southern California.

Instead she preferred a campus setting with cottages so the children could live and flourish in a loving, home environment.

The organization relocated to 17 rolling acres in Pasadena and switched from being an orphanage to a residential center that provides specialized care for at-risk and fragile children and youth.

In addition, Hillsides established the Education Center, which offers individualized educational plans for students with special needs or behavioral problems. The organization also launched several Family Resource Centers that offer crucial mental health services to families throughout Los Angeles and Pasadena. And it created an innovative program, Youth Moving On, to help former foster children successfully transition to adulthood. These four core programs of Hillsides revive spirits, renew trust, and restore hope to over 7,000 individuals a year.

In order to mark 100 years of service and to develop a strategic roadmap to the future, Hillsides has created a new mission statement, which is: to provide hi
