Our community care center in Garden Grove is often the first place people turn to when they find themselves in crisis. Requests for food, hygiene items and utility & motel voucher assistance are received regularly and are provided either weekly or monthly depending on availability. We are able to provide referrals and connect people to local resources that will meet their needs. Today we serve more than 200 individuals and families a month by providing tangible goods and services such as food pantries & Senior Grocery Program, clothing, emergency vouchers for hotel, bus, gas and utilities, housing and rental referrals, hygiene packs, and seasonal programs. When possible we engage people with a case-worker who can access longer term resources to address the more systemic and prevailing needs of the individual. We also provide counseling and supportive services to women and their families that have been a victim of a crime. Our clients are able to receive housing assistance, counseling services, attend groups, receive in depth case management and ongoing support while they navigate to a more stable situation.
Ignited by faith, we live out God’s love by embracing, equipping and empowering vulnerable people in Southern California.
Sharing the love of Christ, we are a community to care and be cared for…where the vulnerable are safer and stronger; where the dependent are self-sustaining; where the isolated dwell in community; where the weary will be given hope.
We serve more than 200 individuals and families each month providing a food pantry, clothing, emergency vouchers for hotel, bus, gas and utilities. We also offer counseling and supportive services to women and their families that have been victims of crime.

Cynthia and her three children under eleven, ran away from an abusive husband in Georgia, and came to the West Coast looking for a new life. They came to LSS for basic items: food, clothes, shoes and hygiene articles. But there was another essential need.
Cynthia was employed, but had no money to provide childcare for her children during the summer months. LSS managed to pay for this critical need, and helped the family find temporary refuge in a domestic violence shelter.
