Central City Community Outreach is a grass-roots, nonprofit organization with more than 20 years of experience serving the holistic needs of the Skid Row homeless community and its fastest growing segment: families and children. Our staff and volunteers offer daily after-school support, tutoring and mentorship to over 90 children. Through special outreach events and summer programs, we serve another 650 children and youth as well as 500 parents and kids living within a two-mile radius of our location at 6th and San Pedro.
We've come to know nearly every family living in the Skid Row district. Our dedicated staff and volunteers regularly visit the shelters and welfare hotels, meet with families and mingle with the larger community. Behind our green doors, children study after school, celebrate their birthdays, share meals and form lifelong friendships. With the support of our longstanding partners and other groups serving Skid Row’s residents, we’re meeting the needs of our community.
