Featured Programs

We serve vulnerable children ages 2-21, the “forgotten children” who are tucked away in group homes, shelters, detention centers, rehab facilities, mental health clinics and special schools throughout Southern California. Our therapeutic programs include music, visual arts, literary arts, fashion, performing arts, digital media and cultural journeys. We also provide arts education in Title 1 schools for disadvantaged youth to prevent dropouts.

Support Create Now

Join our team of volunteers or donate today and make an impact on the lives of our most vulnerable youth-in-need.

Here at the shelter, we can fill the gaps in our youths’ basic needs, but the more important gaps that help them find themselves as individuals and grow as young adults come from the experiences and mentorship provided by selfless and enthusiastic organizations like Create Now and its vibrant team of dedicated individuals.”
