El Centro del Pueblo was established in 1974 as a not-for-profit community service agency. Its mission is to provide social services and resources to the community to improve the quality of life for children, youth and families in the diverse communities of Los Angeles County. They work to alleviate and mitigate the negative affects of gang violence and improve the quality of life for youth and families through prevention, intervention, and education.
Services include counseling, drug prevention, social rehabilitation, employment, outreach, education, health services, and youth services. These services help the physical, mental, emotional and economic well-being of the residents of the communities of Northeast, Downtown and South Los Angeles.
