WIN RECEIVES GRANT FROM THE RALPH M. PARSONS FOUNDATION FOR $75,000


Culver City, CA—Westside Infant-Family Network (WIN) received a $75,000 award from The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation. These funds will support WIN’s award-winning mental health services that are helping redefine the future for LA families and their children.

WIN serves 350-400 clients annually from low-income families with children (0-5 years) at-risk for abuse, neglect and homelessness. Through in-home, child-parent psychotherapy and in-home individual therapy for parents, WIN helps attune family relationships disrupted by trauma, neglect, abuse and mental illness—proven factors for developmental delays and brain function. In addition to in-demand mental health services, WIN provides case management, monthly family social events, and mental health trainings with partner agencies. The program’s clients span cultures, residing primarily in Inglewood, Venice, West LA, and Mar Vista.
