1736 Family Crisis Center Awarded $1 Million Capital Grant by the Everychild Foundation to Address Growing Youth Homelessness

In October 2014, 1736 Family Crisis Center was selected by the Everychild Foundation for its prestigious one-and-only 2014 grant. The $1 million capital award will be used to build the Everychild Foundation Emergency Shelter and Youth Program for homeless and at-risk youth in Los Angeles County. The grant will provide capital to renovate a property 1736 Family Crisis Center owns and create a larger, more versatile facility for its successful 42-year-old emergency shelter program, which serves homeless, runaway and abused youth ages 10-17.

When completed, the new facility will offer safe temporary shelter for homeless youth, and a new, adjacent Youth Empowerment Center that will provide crisis intervention services and educational, job training, life skills, outreach and leadership activities for shelter residents and at-risk community youth.

The Everychild Foundation makes one grant per year to a Los Angeles area non-profit agency benefitting children and youth.
