Location:

10217 Inglewood Avenue, Lennox, CA 90304, US

Mission Statement

St. Margaret's Center's goal is to provide relief, dignity and support to low-income persons in crisis and to assist individuals through case management and skills development to become more self-sufficient and to achieve economic security

Description

St. Margaret's Center, a program of Catholic Charities of Los Angeles Inc., has served low-income and homeless families since 1987. The Center provides a comprehensive range of emergency and supportive services to more than 10,000 unduplicated individuals annually in the Los Angeles "L.A.X." area, primarily those living in the cities or streets of Lennox and surrounding communities.

St. Margaret's Center's mission has remained the same throughout its history, but the Center's programs have grown and evolved to respond to the needs of the community. St. Margaret's Center's programs target individuals and families who live at or below the poverty level. Programs are offered in both English and Spanish, and are free of charge, with the exception of nominal fees for immigration and counseling services. The Center provides assistance to anyone in need, regardless of the person's race, national origin or religious affiliation.
