Hollywood Cares for Kids is a dedicated program for professionals and organizations across the sports, music, arts, fashion and entertainment community who want to make a difference in the lives of the children we serve.
Established in 1901 as Southern California’s first hospital dedicated to the care of children, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has grown alongside the Hollywood community for more than a century. In fact, CHLA moved to its current main campus on Sunset and Vermont in 1913, the same year the very first movie was filmed right down the street in Hollywood.
Today, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is a leading nonprofit hospital for kids, ranked fifth in the nation and serving more than 104,000 patients annually. We provide specialized, compassionate care and services for everything that can affect a child or adolescent, from broken bones to the rarest diseases; from homelessness to gender non-conformity. CHLA is also a premiere teaching and research hospital with more than 150 physician scientists hard at work to end the most devastating childhood disorders.
The program connects you with patient families at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, as well as the special programs, clinical services and medical research initiatives that are most important to you. We work with you to develop meaningful opportunities—from volunteering to strategic partnerships—that turn your passion into action. From stars of the stadium, stage and screen to the pros behind the scenes, everyone can make a difference!
