Our Long Beach Center serves over 1,000 people each month through a comprehensive Emergency Assistance program. We are able to provide basic immediate needs such as food, clothing, hygiene items, and blankets. At the point of client intake we assess their total situation and appropriate programs or services are offered within the agency or by referral to additional resources in the community. We also offer disability and housing benefit assistance to homeless families, individuals and veterans through our County Wide Benefits Services Team (CBEST). Those served are empowered to resolve their problems and develop long-term solutions.
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 conduct assessment interviews to help poor and homeless individuals access governmental benefits. David, a college educated man teaching court-mandated “life skills” classes suffered a stroke. Now he can’t teach, can barely talk, and has lost his home. His family lives with relatives.
Mary, a 21 year-old woman has been homeless for 10 years. Her mother was incarcerated, and she lives in the streets totally on her own.
In addition to clothes and food, we offer hope to people literally hanging on for their lives, in service to Christ.
