iHeartRadio will partner with A Place Called Home and Youth Mentoring Connection to raise money for the two Los Angeles based charities. A Place Called Home provides a safe haven in South Central Los Angeles for underserved youth. They provide programs in education, arts and well-being to empower youth to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives.
