Located in the city of North Hollywood, LSS San Fernando Valley primarily focuses on those without permanent housing and at-risk individuals and families. Our programs are developed to provide emergency services, education, and long-term resources necessary to empower those in need with a sustainable path to independence. Donations of non-perishable food items, gently used clothing, gift cards and financial contributions are always needed and appreciated.
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.
LSS San Fernando Valley offers a full range of emergency assistance, including a weekly food pantry and fresh groceries, new and gently used clothing, counseling, client-based case management and payee services. We also offer referrals and case specific guidance to families and individuals seeking a path to independence and self-sufficiency.

Mothers with young children come to our center. Their food stamps don’t enable the family to buy enough groceries to last the month. That’s when LSS steps in and makes up the difference. Sometimes our pantry is their last option.
One single mom with five children works on a food truck. She leaves home every day at 3:30 AM, and sets the alarm on her cell phone so she can call her children, and make sure they get to school on time. Our pantry is closed when she gets off work, but a volunteer waits until she arrives for the groceries she and her children need. For LSS, the “emergency” in emergency services is sometimes as simple as keeping the door open until our client arrives.
