Urgent message: Due to COVID-19, L.A. GOAL will be closed through March 31, 2020, for both weekday and weekend programs. We are not sure if we will have to extend this further.
Maria came to L.A. GOAL eight years ago. She had not attended any programs for many years. She was non-verbal.
Today, Maria is an active Member of our programs. Now she talks and sings; she is learning her alphabet, learning to write, how to count, and how to work. Her nickname is “Mayor of L.A. GOAL” because whenever a visitor enters the building, she’s the first person to extend her hand and introduce herself.
