What We Do

Reentry Services & Housing

We specialize in reentry services and care. Since opening our first interim housing facility in October 2019, over 50 of our clients have secured permanent housing, and 25 have secured employment through our housing assistance and employment programs.

Prison Outreach Services

One of our first offered services, facilitated by M.E.N.T.O.R.S. since 2016, is a prison outreach program, wherein families of incarcerated individuals may sign up to visit their loved ones in prison or jail and use our transport vans for low-cost travel.

Family Services & Community Center

We are proud to offer a variety of services and programs at our new Community Center in South LA. The Center is designed to be an all-in-one drop-in resource center. The Center features a computer lab and game room for kids, a dance room, a kitchen, a communal backyard area, a gym, and a music studio.

Become a Volunteer

Volunteers are what make our programs thrive! Without volunteers we will be unable to meet the needs of the community. Our community service program is available to the citizens of Los Angeles County. We accept volunteer and court appointment community service workers.
