The Family Rescue Center, formerly known as Rescate, was started in 1998 to provide for the collection and distribution of food and clothing to low-income and homeless families.
Family Rescue Center changes lives. Your support makes our programs possible. You can support Rescate through monetary donations, volunteering and donating goods and services.
Family Rescue Center has a total operating budget of under $70,000 per year, with a single paid employee; we are highly dependent on volunteers. We dream of expanding services that promote academic achievement and assimilation into the workforce.
The work began in the predominately Hispanic community of Canoga Park, California. No one has ever been turned away. From 2000 through 2010 the numbers served has grown from 400 to over 5,000 annually.
