Communities We Serve

Taking The Reins’ core programs annually serve several hundred girls ages 8-18,
attending Los Angeles Unified School District Title 1 schools, and other youth-serving nonprofits across the City of Los Angeles. The vast majority of TTR participants reside in low-income to poverty-level households, and attend schools where they qualify for the reduced or free lunch program.

Taking the Reins partners with diverse agencies and schools throughout Los Angeles County, giving us an opportunity to work with and support girls most in need.
