NCJW/LA is an essential and established provider within Los Angeles’ social services community. The organization provides support that uniquely addresses the whole person: from the warmth of a piece of clothing … to the emotional comfort of group counseling, from the security of our confidential Talkline … to the refuge of a newly refurbished library, from the real-world practicality of life skills training … to the opening of a world of possibilities though art and literacy programs – NCJW/LA is there to serve and advocate for those who are at risk and in need.
