God calls us to offer hope and wholeness and to work toward reconciliation, empowerment, and justice in our community through basic skills development, community and youth development, health services, and urban leadership training.
The Bresee Foundation is a nonprofit community center that is a source of faith, hope and service to low-income youth, adults and families in central Los Angeles. We serve nearly 2,000 individuals annually, primarily at-risk youth from the Mid-Wilshire, Koreatown, Pico Union, and Westlake neighborhoods (90004, 90020, 90057). Most residents live below poverty level and have no access to health care. Gang mayhem and juvenile violent crime are rampant, and over 50% of students are not expected to graduate high school. Bresee works hand-in-hand with our neighbors to focus on the assets of our community and provide necessary support through our center's programs. By offering access to essential resources and services and building upon the knowledge and skills residents already possess or aspire to attain, we are building a healthier, safer place to live--together. Though we are a faith-based organization, we are committed to providing services to everyone who walks through our doors, regardless of what they believe or where they have been--hope and wholeness are for everyone. For a membership fee of just $5 per year, community members can access an array of comprehensive programs that lead to self-sufficiency, transformation and improved quality of life.
