Blank Rome’s Adopt-A-Center Program supports local nonprofit organizations that provide essential outreach to underserved children and families in Los Angeles.
Blank Rome's Adopt-A-Center Program celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2018 with a special celebration honoring all of the program's past recipients and raising awareness into promoting new nonprofit organizations in the future. In 2019, we will continue our practice of annually selecting a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization that benefits children and families in the community who are in need of outreach and support.
Together, Blank Rome and the “adopted” nonprofit organization plan an event for the children and families of the nonprofit's community, as well as guests invited by our Firm. Our Adopt-A-Center Program’s previous commitments include supporting such noteworthy endeavors as a rehabilitative drama and arts program for young women in the Los Angeles County juvenile justice system, an orchestral instruction in East Los Angeles, art programs for abused children, services providing healthcare for low-income families as well as housing for runaway and homeless children, and distributing school supplies and backpacks to needy children before the start of the school year. The events are fully underwritten by Blank Rome, and additional funds for the organization are raised and donated annually by supporters of our Adopt-A-Center Program.
But, Blank Rome’s commitment does not end there. Our Advisory Board and the Firm’s attorneys and professionals also volunteer to participate in the adopted organization’s events that are hosted throughout the year—and frequently, beyond. In past years, participating attorneys have stayed involved well after the completion of our Adopt-A-Center Program’s commitment, in order to assist as board members and volunteers.

2018 ADOPT-A-CENTER PROGRAM: Our 20th Anniversary
This year, we celebrated the depth and breadth of the Adopt-A-Center Program’s reach through an afternoon performance of dance, music, song, and community spirit at the Gindi Auditorium at the American Jewish University in Bel Air, CA. We showcased our past recipients and raised awareness in order to bring new nonprofits into the program. Together, we championed the important work of Los Angeles’ vibrant nonprofit community.
