The People Concern

Volunteers are essential to The People Concern's ability to effectively serve our community's most vulnerable residents.

The People Concern is a leading provider of, and advocate for, evidence-based solutions to the multi-faceted challenges inherent in homelessness and domestic violence. One of Los Angeles County's largest social service agencies, it was formed in 2016 through the merger of the Ocean Park Community Center and Lamp Community.

With compassion and profound respect for those it serves, the organization provides a fully integrated system of care. This includes mental and medical health care, substance abuse services, and permanent supportive housing. These offerings are tailored to meet the unique needs of homeless individuals, survivors of domestic violence, challenged youth, and others who have nowhere to turn. 

The People Concern's model of integrated and comprehensive care empowers its participants to navigate the many obstacles in their lives, become their best selves, and ultimately to connect with and contribute to their communities.
