Founded in 1978. Our mission is to assist the Jewish needy of Los Angeles by providing a variety of family services with the utmost level of dignity and discretion.
Our programs help those without work find jobs, start businesses & earn livelihoods. They provide clothing and furniture, assist with utilities & rent in emergency situations, help children obtain Jewish educations and direct those in need to the proper social service organizations. On a weekly basis we provide food for the week, Shabbat and the holidays. This weekly support restores spirits and allows the Sabbath to work its healing magic on families in need.
There are many thousands of individuals in the greater Los Angeles area who live below the poverty line. Due to lack of sufficient funding, Tomchei LA is only able to assist a small portion of these individuals.
Your contributions will enable Tomchei LA to assist many more of these individuals who so desperately need our help. Tomchei LA is solely donor funded. So together, let us help those who can not afford to help themselves.
