Our mission is to help the most vulnerable youth achieve stability in their physical and mental health by supporting the innovative programs and services of the Division of Adolescent Medicine, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. We meet them on the streets through our outreach with Hollywood Homeless Youth Partnership, in the clinic and in group support settings.

Angels of Change celebrates transgender youth
On October 20 we hosted our Angels of Change fundraiser. The event launched the 2015 Angels of Change calendar, which features twelve of the young people in our Transgender Youth Program.
The Division of Adolescent Medicine has provided healthcare and supportive services specifically designed for transgender youth since 1996. Specialized services consists of a team of physicians, psychologists, social workers, nurses, case managers and health educators who provide a complete range of series for young people struggling with gender non-conformity. Traditionally, we served youth ages 12-24, but in 2010 the clinic was expanded to provide services for gender-variant children, as well.
Since 2008, we have produced this calendar and a launch event with the goals engaging transgender youth as role models and creating positive community visibility of transgender-identified youth. Learn more and purchase the calendar at www.AngelsOfChange.net
