Securing Help in Economic and Life Development (SHIELD) Inc. is committed to empowering individuals and families by providing life development programs and resources.
Securing Help in Economic and Life Development (SHIELD) Inc. was founded in 2008 with a mission committed to the empowerment of the community by providing programs, policies, and multiethnic partnerships that focused our resources to eliminate the root causes of poverty in our area.
Over the years SHIELD Inc. has also partnered with a local community church on Martin Luther King Jr. weekend and provided soup and blankets to the community and supplies to a local Domestic Violence Shelter. SHIELD Inc. has also held community wide health seminars, Caregivers seminars and provided educational classes to high school students to enhance success and improve their ability to find gainful employment.
In 2016 SHIELD Inc. hosted its first debutante ball awarding over $5,000 in scholarships. In 2017, SHIELD Inc. for Science and Engineering (SSE) was added. This program helps send fifth graders on science field trips to the Griffith Park Observatory School Program and the California Science Center.
SHIELD Inc.’s future plans include a community garden and career educational programs so check back on our website for more information.
