Make a Difference in the Lives of the Youth in Need


Create Now is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that transforms the lives of youth in need through creative arts mentoring and opportunities. We serve abused, homeless, incarcerated, and other challenged youth, ages 2-21, with our therapeutic programs in music, writing, visual arts, dance, theatre, and more.

Each year, we also bring thousands of these “forgotten children” who have fallen through the cracks to concerts, plays and other cultural events at premiere venues in the region. We have reached 35,000 of the most troubled youth in Southern California during the last 18 years.

Los Angeles has one of the highest poverty rates in the nation. Over 10,000 of our children are homeless and we have the highest number of incarcerated youth in the country. Create Now’s therapeutic arts mentoring programs help troubled kids to build self-confidence, esteem and find career opportunities.

DonateThere are many ways to help, and every little bit allows our troubled youth the chance to transform their lives. Contributions are urgently needed to support our expanding programs. Donations in any amount are greatly appreciated.
