A Place Called Home is a non-profit youth center in South Central Los Angeles where underserved children and young people are empowered to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives. Founded in 1993, it started as a place that gang-affected youth could come after school, get a snack, do homework, hang with friends, and be with people that care.

Today, A Place Called Home offers a variety of activities including an all-day school, computer lab, music and art classes, and mentoring and tutoring programs. By addressing their basic needs and rights, the center staff and programs inspire kids to make a meaningful difference in their community and the world.
