Since 1972, 1736 Family Crisis Center, a private non-profit multi-service center, has been responding to the growing needs of victims of domestic violence, runaway and homeless youth, homeless families, unemployed adults and youth, homeless veterans and their families and other low income community members in need of assistance. This is the only program that takes in male youths to the age of 18.

The members of Soroptimist International of Los Angeles have been a continuing contributor to this program.
