“Don’t Move, Improve”
Most people have heard of WLCAC because it’s where they, their parents, or grandparents had their first job. As people in the world’s third largest economy experience poverty and homelessness, we work everyday to help people and families thrive.
That started in the 60’s when our founder helped lower the federal working age to allow youth in Watts to earn a living during the summer after the fateful 1965 Watts Rebellion. Every day for the past 58 years, whether through grassroots community organizing or funded programs, we help provide free support for: Family stability, Employment, Housing and Homelessness prevention, Seniors, Farming, Youth Development, and Cultural Enrichment.
