Magnolia Community Initiative

Residents, parents, state-based institutions and non-profit organizations engaged in the Magnolia Community Initiative are interested in the well-being of children and families in low-income neighborhoods of West Adams, Pico Union and the North Figueroa Corridor. UCLA Health is a partner in this effort to address social isolation, family stressors and issues around child-development concerns, helping the initiative to develop a systematic response to those situations or conditions. As a partner with the Magnolia Community Initiative, UCLA Health has acted as a coach to create a community of wellness.
