The Harold Robinson Foundation was established based on the principle that each and every child deserves opportunities, no matter where they stand on the socioeconomic ladder. HRF provides the funding and resources to send Los Angeles’ less fortunate children to camp, in a safe and nurturing environment, far away from the stress that most of them face on a daily basis. HRF strives to create a sense of purpose and accomplishment in each individual, while working towards building communities through communication and support for schools and families. The mission has grown from the simple hope of allowing youths to experience camp for a weekend to investing in their futures, their families, their schools and their communities.
