1736 Family Crisis Center

For Victims of Domestic Violence and For Runaway / Homeless Youth, and More . . . . .

Since 1972, the 1736 Family Crisis Center has responded to the needs of:

  • victims of domestic violence,  victims of sexual assault,  victims of human trafficking,
  • runaway and homeless youth,  homeless families,  homeless and at-risk veterans,
  • unemployed adults and youth,  and other low-income community members in need of assistance.

1736 FCC provides comprehensive rehabilitative programs that are managed by licensed therapists, social workers, attorneys, and other professional staff.  Men, women, children, and families can access life-saving support 24 hours a day through five shelters, five community service centers, various community-based offices and co-locations, and five crisis and suicide hotlines.  1736 FCC  helps kids, families, and veterans so that they can permanently escape the worst possible conditions of poverty, homelessness, and violence.

1736 FCC serves approximately 6,000 people in Los Angeles and Orange County plus an additional 20,000 people through educational and street outreach.  All services are free of charge through the generous support of public and private funders (including MBCC), individual donors, and volunteers.

MBCC has continuously and enthusiastically supported 1736 FCC for over  40 years, providing monthly funds to support these services.  A portion of these MBCC funds were used specifically to provide groceries for the youth shelter.  One of our church members has chaired the governing board of 1736 FCC for 30 years.
