To inspire change in a young person’s life, we at Safe Place for Youth engage, build trust, and provide care and support to youth experiencing homelessness, so that the youth, not their situations, define their lives. Our robust continuum of care addresses the unique needs of this population through assertive street outreach, low barrier drop-in services, health and wellness programming, case management, and education and employment services.
The West Valley WorkSource Center is federally funded through the City of Los Angeles Workforce Development Board, as a result of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. The Center provides no cost business services and resources for individuals seeking jobs.
We enroll new students age 16-24 every 5-8 weeks. Our high school program is located on campus at LA Trade Technical College. All incoming students co-enroll at the College, so our students have access to College courses plus the College library, computer lab, and many other resources. At CRCD Academy, we focus on project-based learning and we offer an expedited path to earn an accredited high school diploma with the YouthBuild Charter School of CA.
