New Visions Foundation, founded in 1994 by Dr. Paul Cummins, is now the Coalition for Engaged Education.

“This change reflects the reality of who we are and what we’ve been doing over the past two decades,” said Cummins. “We have started schools, created and maintained programs that target at-risk youth, and worked to bring resources into severely threatened neighborhoods. But at the core, we are always working to connect youth with education that excites them and helps them build their respective futures based on that engagement.”

The Coalition for Engaged Education moniker will take effect immediately, and its programs, which have been running under different names for years, will be renamed as well. New Roads for New Visions, which works with juvenile-justice-involved youth, will now be known as CEE HOPE. The Coalition for Educational Opportunities, which works with foster youth from middle school through college and into careers, will be CEE FORWARD. Initiatives in Lennox, California, will be referred to as CEE LENNOX.  

Engaged Education has been at the core of his educational career since 1970, when Dr. Cummins was the lead founder of the nationally renowned Crossroads School in Santa Monica. Cummins then founded New Visions Foundation, which in turn founded New Roads School.

Coalition for Engaged Education ( reflects the core value at the heart of all of its programs, the organization’s history of partnerships and collaboration, and its desire to be a national leader in progressive education.

Though the newly named Coalition has many programs, it has one vision at its core: to demonstrate to the world the power and effectiveness of

Engaged Education.

Western Institute of Sexual Health (WISH)

Screening and Treatment Options Available for Men & Women

The Western Institute of Sexual Health (WISH) has opened new offices in Santa Monica and will begin seeing patients Friday, February 15, 2013.  Larry Paletz, MD, a board certified urologist and Santa Monica resident, says, “My physician partners and other staff members look forward to bringing the most comprehensive sexual health clinic to Santa Monica and West Los Angeles with the opening of our new offices here.  Men and women should know that we will do our upmost to restore their sexual health with cost-effective treatments that contribute to overall health and wellbeing.”

The new WISH office is located at 2001 Santa Monica Blvd., Suite 890W in Santa Monica, near St. John’s Hospital at 20th and Santa Monica Blvd.  For a limited time WISH doctors are offering free screenings for low testosterone (also known as Low-T), a low-cost Penile Doppler Ultrasound test for erectile dysfunction (also known as E.D.), and diagnostic testing for a variety of other issues that may be impeding sexual health and overall health.  If treatment is needed WISH accepts most health insurance. 

“My colleagues and I have found that some people are not comfortable talking with their own doctor about their sexual health issues.  That’s why we’re here.  To listen, to educate and to help patients know that most sexual health issues can be resolved.  They don’t have to suffer in silence, and their partners will be happy they sought treatment,” says Dr. Paletz.

For more information and appointments people should call (800) 222-WISH (9474). Additional information on WISH is available at its website

Mofrad Financial Solutions

I, Edward Mofrad CPA CVA MBA, started this practice in 1996 as a part-time endeavor.  At the time, I only had the MBA designation, and though had passed the exam, was not yet a California Certified Public Accountant.
Fresh from working for the Internal Revenue Service, I was eager to implement some of the many ideas that had occurred to me while working with the taxpayers from "the other side".  At the outset, though, I only meant to provide seasonal tax services.
The idea in mind was pretty simple:  provide service for clients as if I was doing it for myself, with a "touch of personal care".  Since I was not depending on the income for livelihood, I could afford to take my time with the returns (as opposed to rush through them in an assembly-line format in pursuit of bigger profits), examine alternatives, and come up with unique suggestions for the clients.  I kept hearing "No one ever suggested this to me before" from my patronage.

Mofrad Financial Solutions is a full-service practice; no client is turned away, unless it is deemed that his/her interests are best served by being referred to a specialist in one of the many other niche areas within the accounting arena.  Tax, Valuation, Business Start-up/Dissolution, consultation and planning comprise our practice at this point.

Joyful Acupuncture

At the age of twenty-three, I had to undergo open heart surgery. This began a long list of happenings that would change my view of western medicine forever. There were so many events that seemed in opposition to cultivating health and healing that once I had finally recovered from my surgery, I knew there must be more to medicine than this. It was soon after surgery I realized my life calling as a health practitioner and enrolled in a Masters program of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Finally in April of 2011 I opened my own acupuncture and wellness practice in Santa Monica, Joyful Acupuncture.

I believe a life of wellness is achieved through the simpler points – proper food, sleep, exercise and mental well-being. Provided with the right tools the human body has amazing capabilities to heal itself of just about anything.  If you love your body, it will absolutely love you back.

Mom Corps

Kate Pletcher is Principal and Co-Owner of the Los Angeles franchise of Mom Corps, a national staffing and search firm that specializes in connecting companies in need of on-demand employees with experienced professionals seeking flexible work. As the name suggests, Mom Corps was originally founded to serve women who left the workforce to raise families and wanted to return on a part-time or project basis or who were working full-time and were seeking access to greater flexibility; however, the need for flexibility has become universal, and they have found both men and individuals at different stages in their careers turning to Mom Corps for placement in contract, temporary, part-time, or full-time flexible positions.
Most of the positions they fill are for professionals such as CPAs, Attorneys, MBAs, Marketing, Human Resources, IT and Sales Specialists... a couple of examples of recent placements here in the Los Angeles area are:
  • A law firm downtown that took on a big litigation case and needed to staff-up, but didn't need to had full-time headcount added an experienced litigation attorney from Mom Corps to work 30-35 hours/week
  •  A CPG company in OC had a Brand Manager go on maternity leave and we provided an interim Manager for the 4-month leave
  • A small VC firm in Hancock Park needed a Bookkeeper for their firm and a few of their portfolio companies, but didn't need a full-time staff, so we provided a very experienced 10-hour/week Bookkeeper
Prior to launching Mom Corps Los Angeles, Kate most recently served as Director of Global Brand Licensing for Skechers USA, sourcing and managing licensing programs on behalf of the $2 billion brand around the world. During college, she founded the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Madison, WI which has grown to become one of the city’s premier annual, signature events. Kate received her BA in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin and her MBA from UCLA Anderson. She serves on the Advisory Board of SPARK, provides sales workshops for a number of individuals and institutions, and is an active member of a number of Los Angeles community organizations including Step Up, Bruin Professionals, NAWMBA, and now the Santa Monica Chamber!  She lives in Venice, CA with her husband Erik and dog Kirby.

The average life expectancy of someone with CF is 38.There is no cure.  We receive no federal funding and depend on the generosity of individual donors and corporations to support our lifesaving mission.  In 2009, nearly 90% of every dollar of revenue raised was available for investment in CF research, care and education programs.
