The Guardians

The mission of The Guardians is to provide financial support for the residents and participants in community-based programs served by LAJHealth.

On May 16, 1938 a group of Angelinos gathered to form what is now known as The Guardians of LAJHealth. Started as an organization for men, it is now an active group of men and women committed to supporting the seniors cared for by Los Angeles Jewish Health.
