A community center such as St. Margaret's offers a natural avenue to provide a range of services to poverty-level families. The Center provides a comprehensive range of emergency and supportive services to about 10,000 unduplicated individuals annually in the Los Angeles "L.A.X." area, primarily those living in the cities or streets of Inglewood and surrounding communities. Over the past 35 years, persons with multiple needs have come to the Center for services and referrals for food, shelter, legal, medical, employment, housing, education and social services. Currently, about 500 persons come into St. Margaret's Center each week for one or more of its programs. They are all low-income, 85% communities of color, with the majority living below the federal poverty level.
St. Margaret's Center has been serving low-income and homeless families since 1987 and their 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. We are teaming up with the Westchester Rotary Club, Volunteer Designer Tori Hettinger and the community to give St. Margaret's Center a complete makeover!
