Mission Statement

Las Familias del Pueblo is a community center for garment workers and their children. It is located on the edge of Skid Row and the start of the Garment District.

Description

As a community center for sweatshop workers and their families, Las Familias serves 500 families a year. There is an after-school program for 100 children, English-as-a-Second-Language classes, a weekly legal clinic for work-related problems and assistance with whatever needs the mostly immigrant families. The center has a kindergarten/first grade charter school that provides a full-day, academically challenging curriculum to some of this city's most educationally-at-risk children.
