Back in the San Rafael hills of Pasadena stands Hillsides. It a charity that offers shelter, education and treatment to Southern California’s young people and families who need it. And it’s a hundred years old – one of LA’s oldest such organizations.

Off-Ramp producer Kevin Ferguson talked with Hillsides' Director of Communications Marisol Barrios and Ted Lamb. Today, Ted's an attorney, but in 1949 he was just 9 years old--and Hillsides was his home.
