Staying in touch is an essential part of the PLYS experience! Thank you to our caring Alumni from 1954, 1980, 2002, 2006 and 2009 for showing their love and support for PLYS on Saturday. It was a touching day for both the current and former residents who shared their experiences and enjoyed an exciting basketball game that highlighted the importance of teamwork and support!
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department All Star team played a basketball game with Pacific Lodge and the Brokers Corporate League teams on Saturday, April 11. The basketball game lasted for an hour and was followed by a barbecue lunch provided by the staff at Huntington Culinary. Pacific Lodge is happy to collaborate with LA Sheriff’s Department and extends a warm thanks to all the participants.
As part of the Rotary Day of Service, Rotary Club of Woodland Hills and PLYS residents came together to lend a helping hand to the hungry and homeless men, women and children in the Valley. We deeply value our partnership and are grateful to the Rotary Club of Woodland Hills for touching so many lives at the Lodge and in the community!
In celebration of Women’s History Month, our young men did presentations on key women who demonstrated their commitment and courage as political and community leaders, mothers, educators, relief workers and institution builders. Presentations like these encourage our residents to recognize historical women role models and respect the diversity and depth of women’s experience.
On Monday March 23rd, 2015, we hosted a Charity Golf Tournament with the Brooks & Brooks Foundation at the Woodland Hills Country Club. Our community, and dedicated supporters, came together to support all of the work being done with at-risk youth and their families and there couldn’t have been a more beautiful day of golf. Not to mention the Southern California sunshine. The highlight of the day was when one of our former residents spoke about the positive impact that Pacific Lodge Youth Services has had in his life. He will be graduating next Summer from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in Sociology. Successful stories such as Matt’s, are the reason why we strive to provide the best services possible.
Pacific Lodge would like to take this opportunity to thank our outstanding volunteers, players and generous supporters who made this event successful. Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you next year!

Universal Studios implemented a program called “Random Acts of Giving”, and we were thrilled to learn that their Retail Department selected Pacific Lodge as the organization they wanted to support. Our staff and the boys were happy to welcome a group of Universal Studios employees who came to Pacific Lodge to donate musical instruments to our music program. Our young men were able to interact with the volunteers and open the instruments. We are so grateful to Universal Studios for helping our boys grow and learn and keeping our music studio alive!
Pacific Lodge continues to work with Wolf Connection, a youth education and empowerment program that uses an innovative approach to explore the human-animal connection. The organization rescues and trains wolfdogs to become program animals for at-risk youth. Our young men have recently participated in the monthly hike with wolves. It was an amazing day at Wolf Connection. Our boys were able to get a tour of the sanctuary and meet the members of the pack. The day ended with a festive potluck accompanied by sweetly melodic howls. Read more…… Wolf Connection Hike
