Upward Bound House Name Jonathan Fischer To Board of Directors:

Upward Bound House has a new face on its Board of Directors – Jonathan Fischer.

Fischer has extensive experience in the entertainment industry, currently working as Chief Operating Officer at New Regency Productions having formerly served as an executive at Groundswell Productions, Intrepid Pictures, and Universal Pictures.

Earlier this year, he and his wife Natalie, an executive at Illumination Entertainment, organized a special screening of Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax for the Upward Bound House community which raised money and awareness for the non-profit agency.

Fischer has also contributed greatly as a generous donor, volunteer, and member of Upward Bound House’s Development committee.

“It’s a great honor to be involved with Upward Bound House and I’m excited to be joining the Board of such an important and effective organization,” Fischer said. “In the time that I’ve been working with UBH, I’ve been deeply impressed by the professionalism of the organization and its ability to have an impact in such a vital area of need.”

David Snow, Executive Director of Upward Bound House, said he was thrilled to have Fischer join its Board of Directors.

“His passion for helping families in crisis makes him an excellent addition to our dedicated and talented Board,” Snow said.

Jonathan and his wife Natalie live in Los Angeles with their two children.

The mission of Upward Bound House is to eliminate homelessness among families with children in Los Angeles by providing housing, supportive services and advocacy. Since 1997, more than 600 families – including over 1,100 children – have graduated from Upward Bound House and are no longer homeless. According to recent data, more than 6,000 children are homeless on any given night in Los Angeles.
