Our Mission

The Mission of City Hearts is to provide the highest quality Arts education and experiences to the most-at-risk children in economically distressed neighborhoods of Southern California, enhancing self-esteem, literacy, social, academic and creativity skills, that increase opportunities to advance learning, while strengthening the health and vitality of our community. City Hearts inspires a love for the Arts, an appreciation of creative discipline and respect for the creative process, enabling children and youth to be confident, imaginative, tolerant, generous and cooperative, as well as productive, contributing participants in their communities.
