“Safe Surrender is one of the most important programs I’ve been able to create here in Los Angeles County during my years as a member of the Board of Supervisors. It’s a program that works—we see the results every day in the smiles of all the children who have been given a second chance at life. Thank you to the Long Beach Community Foundation for helping us give these children the gift of an education.” -LA County Supervisor Don Knabe
