Who Are We?
Superheroes Visit is a family run nonprofit (501(c)3) organization (EIN#87-3511951) which started as a calling to help our community during the pandemic. Superheroes Visit consists of Jiten Pandya (Spider-Man) who is a retired police officer, Lindsay Pandya (Wonder Woman) who is a psychologist and Noah Pandya (Superman) who is a prior Army Ranger. We all have a special skill that makes us not just superheroes, but a team driven to inspire others and lift spirits.
Jiten moved from London to California in his mid 20’s to pursue his dreams to become an American police officer. He was an officer for 12 years in Pasadena and loved his job but was medically retired due to an injury on the job. He loved interacting with the community and felt fulfilled when he worked with kids at his job. His goal was to inspire the kids to follow their dreams as well. For years he lacked purpose because he had no avenue to give back to others after being retired.
Jiten has loved Spider-Man since he was a young boy and this love and obsession did not wane over the years. He had everything he could decked out in Spider-Man theme, including his beloved Hayabusa motorcycle, and even owned his own Spider-Man costume. When the pandemic hit early 2020, his wife, Lindsay, encouraged him to take his love and passion and use it for good in the community. Instantly he felt he had purpose again and his heart was full after each visit.
Lindsay is a psychologist and has been in the mental health field for over 20 years. Much of her training and work experience has been with kids. She loves to inspire people to believe in themselves and go after their dreams. Wonder Woman has been a role model to Lindsay since she represents strength, resiliency, kindness, love, and helping others, and she shows how strong women are. These are all thing that Lindsay believes in as well. She was inspired to join the team as Wonder Woman when she would see how excited the girls got on these visits. She wanted to give the girls a female representation on these visits to show that girls can be superheroes and strong too. Lindsay also helps the team by developing inspiring messages for everyone to use.
Noah has always loved Superman since he was young. He looks up to the strength and bravery that Superman represents. When Noah was 18, he joined the Army and did years of training to become an Army Ranger. He has been in leadership roles most of his life and feels a call to help others. He is the first person to pull over when he sees someone broken down on the side of the street. He joined the team to continue to inspire kids to be strong and keep going on, no matter the adversity they face. Late 2021, Noah got into a motorcycle accident and has had surgeries to fix his broken bones with rods. He now truly is a man of steel.
The visits began by Spider-Man riding to the neighbors homes on his Spider-Man themed motorcycle and meeting the kids outside. He always brings gifts, allows the kids to sit on his bike, take photos, and he takes time to talk to the kids to inspire them. Many of these kids were missing out on birthday parties due to the COVID restrictions, had family that were sick and were dealing with depression and anxiety. Visits are kept short to keep imagination and curiosity alive for the kids.
Everything was self-funded so after almost a year of doing these visits, Jiten considered stopping everything. The community refused to allow this to happen and they insisted on donating to the cause. He decided to create the nonprofit so that he could help the families that were helping him with a tax write-off. We now ask for a donation of any amount for the visits. All of the donations go straight back into buying more gifts, maintaining the vehicles and to keep things running. No one on the team earns any money and feel their payment is received when we see the smiles on the kids (and parents) faces.
The team wanted to continue to grow and help more and more people so we could make the most impact possible. We have made hospital visits, school visits and have helped other nonprofits like the Michael Hoefflin Foundation, Shriners Hospital, Project Sebastian, American Cancer Society, Children's Hospital- LA, Free To Be Me, and Circle of Hope. We are so grateful for the community for their support and businesses like What’s Up SCV, Elite Magazine, Bubble Lick, The Signal, Cruzin’ Thru Comics, and SCV News for helping us over the years. We could not do this without the support of others.

We Are Here For You!
It is important, especially in times like this, to encourage children to develop meaningful relationships with others. We help them feel valued and to provide a sense of connectedness and belonging. Our mission is to tell the children we meet that they too can be their own superhero and dreams can come true.
What We Do:
We have brought smiles and positivity from ages 3 years old to 100 years old (yes 100 years old).
To promote social well-being, encourage self esteem and reaching your dream.
Superheroes Visit aims to reach as many people in our community to spread cheer and help our youth learn the values of life and reach for their dreams.
Visits are currently only in Santa Clarita California, but under special circumstances arrangements can be made.
In some cases a video can be emailed to fill a need. Please contact us for any special requests.
Just a few things our happy families have said to us!
The team at Superheroes Visit were absolutely amazing. I had tears down my face watching my son light up after dealing with so many hospital visits. I can't thank them enough.
THIS IS SO WONDERFUL!!! We called them out for a visit and all the neighborhood kids came out. They were so respectful and very safe during these crazy COVID times. My kids loved their outfits and bikes and even got gifts! I encourage everyone to donate to keep this going.
