Happy Trails for Kids

The Robert Nelson Foundation is proud to support the Happy Trails for Kids organization. The Happy Trails for Kids mission is to exclusively serve children in foster care, ages 7 and older, by creating opportunities for hundreds of boys and girls growing up in foster care within the Los Angeles area. The organization provides these children access to outdoor adventures, overnight summer camp and year-round supportive programming. The pandemic has presented new challenges for organizations like Happy Trails on all fronts. In response, the staff at Happy Trails has developed a comprehensive program to help these children in foster care by providing weekly communication, extracurricular activities, career exploration, academic support, tutoring and individualized sessions with counselors. The Robert Nelson Foundation has provided a $5,000 gift to assist with the special needs that the pandemic has presented to the staff at Happy Trails and salutes the wonderful work that they do.

Thanks to our incredible partners, like the Robert Nelson Foundation, Happy Trails for Kids is able to provide year-round supportive services and create meaningful opportunities for children to participate in new experiences, adventures and mentorships.
