Operation Progress LA

Operation Progress Los Angeles

OP was started by a group of Southeast Division LAPD Police Officers who fight gang crime in South Los Angeles; the officers of OP set out to find kids who have survived in these bad neighborhoods and assist them through leadership training, mentoring and financial assistance for education. Students in the OP system range in age from 3rd – 12th grade. The effectiveness of OP is the result of LAPD mentoring, partnerships with local private schools, after-school providers, and college preparedness programs.


Sheriff's Youth Foundation of LA County

Sheriff’s Youth Foundation

The Sheriff’s Youth Foundation of Los Angeles County  is marking its 30th anniversary of preventing juvenile delinquency by providing innovative and enriching programs that shape youth and build community. The foundation’s partnership with Sheriff Jim McDonnell and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is what distinguishes us from other programs and agencies that address juvenile delinquency and crime prevention. Each of our 17 Youth Activities League Centers (YAL) are managed by either a Sheriff’s Deputy or Sergeant assigned by the captain of the local Sheriff’s station to oversee the staff, programs and youth in the YAL. Each year we serve thousands of youth (ages 7 to 17) who live in the most gang plagued, at-risk, and underserved communities of Los Angeles County.


LA Fire Department Foundation

LAFD Foundation

The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation supports the LAFD in protecting life, property, and the environment by providing essential equipment, training, and public outreach programs to supplement city resources. The foundation is the major source of private support to the LAFD. In addition to department-wide grants, the foundation manages the Adopt a Fire Station program that assists neighborhood fire stations and specialized units (Arson, Dive Team, Bike Medics, Air Operations, and others) with their specific needs.


Los Angeles County Fire Department Foundation

The mission of the Los Angeles County Fire Department Foundation is to create and coordinate fire and life safety education and training programs in the communities of Los Angeles County and to raise the funds necessary to support and sustain these youth and community-based programs.

Our Vision
The Foundation will support the Fire District in its mission to “enrich lives through effective and caring service” by: 1) providing an avenue for soliciting and accepting donations for programs that are currently underfunded or non-funded; 2) enhancing the Fire District’s community training programs; 3) increasing the Fire District’s ability to maintain close, meaningful relationships with its communities.
