Our Mission

Share Necessities is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization teaching mindfulness, yoga, and wellness to at-risk youth in South Central LA. It’s our mission to “Bring Inner Peace to the Streets” with our youth education programs, urban garden, and community center.  We are dedicated to empowering individuals and families by providing the tools to build health, confidence, and transformation in one of Los Angeles’ most underserved communities. 


Regardless of circumstance, everyone deserves the opportunity of positive self-discovery and a healthy lifestyle. We advocate wellness with the power of nutritious foods and personal connection. It’s no secret that when we feel our best, we give our best, and our community is strengthened and thrives as a result.


We believe change starts from the inside out, a healthy body and mind lead to a more positive life. Share Necessities provides children and young adults with the skills and experience to live a well-balanced life. Understanding ourselves is essential to realizing our full potential. Our program inspires student to dream of new possibilities, create opportunities, and practice self-love. With our support and guidance, students are given an opportunity to discover new life paths.  


Our goal is to partner with schools, organizations, and community outreach groups to provide students with improved strength and physical health through yoga and meditation, emotional intelligence and resiliency by mindful actions, and a connection to the community by means of social and civic engagement.
