General

  • Mission:
  • A Place Called Home is a safe haven in South Central Los Angeles where underserved youth are empowered to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives through programs in education, arts, and well-being and are inspired to make a meaningful difference in their community and the world.

  • History:
  • A Place Called Home was founded in 1993 when real estate professional Debrah Constance dedicated herself to providing gang-affected youth in South Central Los Angeles with a safe place after school to get a snack, do homework, play with friends, and be with caring adults. On the first day of the agency’s existence 12 kids showed up to the basement of a church. To be members, youth had to agree to some basic rules: no weapons, drugs, graffiti or gang signs. They all returned the next day and they kept coming. The program expanded to include field trips, sports activities and holiday events.

    Three years later, 400 children and youth were regular members of APCH and we moved to our present location on South Central Avenue; the Center now has 25,000 square feet of space and includes an athletic field, commercial kitchen, garden and dance studio.
