Since 1972, 1736 Family Crisis Center has been responding to the growing needs of victims of domestic violence, runaway and homeless youth, homeless families, unemployed adults and youth, and other low-income community members in need of assistance. We are dedicated to providing professional, cutting -edge, comprehensive programs that are managed by licensed therapists, attorneys and our experienced staff. Men, women, children and families can access life saving support 24 hours a day through five shelters, three community service centers and five crisis hotlines. We are always accessible and ready to help kids and families so that they can permanently escape the worst possible conditions of poverty and violence.
In October 2014, 1736 Family Crisis Center was selected by the Everychild Foundation for its prestigious one-and-only 2014 grant. The $1 million capital award will be used to build the Everychild Foundation Emergency Shelter and Youth Program for homeless and at-risk youth in Los Angeles County.
The grant will provide capital to renovate a property 1736 Family Crisis Center owns and create a larger, more versatile facility for its successful 42-year-old emergency shelter program, which serves homeless, runaway and abused youth ages 10-17.
When completed, the new facility will offer safe temporary shelter for homeless youth, and a new, adjacent Youth Empowerment Center that will provide crisis intervention services and educational, job training, life skills, outreach and leadership activities for shelter residents and at-risk community youth.
The Everychild Foundation makes one grant per year to a Los Angeles area non-profit agency benefitting children and youth.
