St. Joseph Center



Our mission is to provide working poor families, as well as homeless men, women, and children of all ages with the inner resources and tools to become productive, stable and self-supporting members of the community.

Respect for the dignity of each person is the cornerstone of St. Joseph Center’s approach. Staff and volunteers make every effort to provide a welcoming, safe place where all people are treated with compassion and dignity. The words we use to embody our philosophy and approach are: Accountability, Respect, Integrity, Social Justice, and Empowerment.

From our roots in that Rose Avenue storefront in Venice, we have grown into a multifaceted social service organization offering Outreach & Engagement, Housing, Mental Health, and Education & Vocational programs at multiple sites on the Westside and in South Los Angeles. Today we serve more than 7,000 men, women, and children annually.
