Barrio Action Youth and Community Center
What is FamilySource Center (FSC)?
FamilySource Centers are located throughout the City of Los Angeles to serve, assist, and support residents in their local neighborhoods and communities. Each center offers a variety of educational, family, children, and youth services including counseling, cultural, recreational, and after-school activities on-site or nearby through a referral system. Special services include financial counseling and tax preparation, ESL classes, food distribution, and disaster preparation training. The FamilySource centers are also available for community meetings, special and holiday events, and volunteer opportunities.
The NorthEast FamilySource Center has collaborations with Healing Urban Barrios, the Los Angeles Boys and Girls Club, Lincoln Heights Tutorial Program, Plaza de la Raza, Urban 36Zero, Soledad Enrichment Actions, ALMA Family Services, Hillsides, College Bridge Academy, and many local groups such as the El Sereno Stallions, the El Sereno Chamber of Commerce, El Sereno Bicentennial Committee, LA32 Neighborhood Council, and many local LAUSD schools.
