Culver City, CA—Westside Infant-Family Network (WIN) received a $75,000 unrestricted award from the Weingart Foundation. These funds will support the overall organization of WIN’s award-winning mental health services that are helping reshape the future for LA families and their children.

Through in-home, child-parent psychotherapy and in-home individual therapy for parents, WIN helps improve family relationships disrupted by trauma, neglect, abuse and mental illness—proven factors for developmental delays and brain function.
