About LFIA – Our Mission

For over 100 years the Los Feliz Improvement Association (LFIA) has been instrumental in assisting our community through donations to schools, advocating on traffic and safety issues, and participating in homelessness solutions. We are active nature-lovers, working hard to preserve Griffith Park and our Deodars. And we are history buffs, maintaining records of our historic homes and actively working to ensure the character of our neighborhood remains intact and celebrated.

LFIA is a 501c3 non-profit organization. With the continuing support of our members, the LFIA remains one of the oldest and most influential organizations in Los Angeles. We welcome all residents of Los Feliz to become a member and join one of our committees. Take a moment now and join LFIA.  Click here to see how easy it is to support the neighborhood group that has been going strong since 1916.
