Justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society.

Equity:

The quality of being fair and impartial.

wHY IS THIS

IMPORTANT?

Lost Angels headquarters is located in Lancaster California, at the edge of L.A. County. In this area, we have the highest percentage of youth from low-income foster care backgrounds. 

 

Studies show that youth placed in foster care are 2.5 times more likely to enter the justice system, and 90% of youth with 5+ foster care placements will enter the justice system at some point. It’s also been reported that almost 25% of those who have exited foster care have reported being homeless at least once since leaving the system.

We’re fighting systemic inequity by creating empowering opportunities for young people because we believe everyone deserves a chance at creating a good life for themselves. Through these efforts, we hope to dismantle the School/Foster Care-to-Prison Pipeline and to repair the intergenerational harm it is causing to youth, families, and communities across the nation.
