Our Mission

The Avalon-Carver Community Center has been a multi-service resource to low-income individuals and families in south-central Los Angeles, CA since 1940.

Founded with community funds, the Center has expanded over the years to offer a variety of publicly and privately funded programs for low income families and those impacted by the abuse of alcohol and other addictive substances.

It hopes to change the attitudes and negative behaviors of it’s clients for the purpose of returning them to productive and satisfying roles within the community.

Our Goals
For The Future

Avalon-Carver Community Center is returning to it’s original purpose of providing a full array of services that will strengthen families, promote economic self -sufficiency and develop a strong sense of community.

Today, our community consists not only of people, but networks of providers, corporate sponsors, politicians, private foundations, public jurisdictions, HMOs and other managed care providers.

The way we must do business has changed. We have to be able to receive assistance as it’s offered while remaining selfsufficient.

We want to return to old values, make them work within present realities, and anticipate new challenges.
