The Walker Family Events Foundation was formed out of a love for people and for the community. As a family living in Compton, CA, we have a desire to see economic, social, and educational opportunities be made available to low-income communities in Southern California and across the U.S.
At Walker Family Events we believe that the community can heal itself.
We design and plan events that produce opportunities for developing and sustaining lasting partnerships between residents, local organizations, academic institutions, and government.
Our events help to build these new partnerships by providing an environment conducive to positive interactions, which open the lines of communication between families and agencies that service their community, and create networking opportunities that help to improve the quality of life for all involved.
