Founded in 1931 in the midst of the Great Depression, the legacy of today’s JVS SoCal began with a single desk in a Bunker Hill office in downtown Los Angeles, serving job seekers who were struggling to survive amid overt workplace discrimination. Eight decades later, the agency is a recognized regional leader in the field of workforce development, offering a broad range of innovative programs to 50,000 individuals each year and advocating on issues of public policy that impact the people we serve.
Empowering individuals to achieve dignity and economic independence through sustainable employment.
Thriving communities with hope and economic opportunity for all.
Respect for individuals and families
Integrity and professionalism in all our interactions
Principled advocacy on behalf of those we serve
Collective and collaborative stewardship
Commitment to uplift communities and serve those in need
Last year, we provided life-changing services to over 30,000 people, offering hope and opportunity through job training, career-building skills and access to resources through our network of community partners, empowering them to achieve sustainable employment. Factoring in the nearly 20,000 individuals who accessed one of our sites by attending an orientation, using our computer centers, JVS SoCal impacted close to 50,000 in 2017.
Our services are offered at the America’s Job Centers/WorkSource Centers we operate in West L.A., the Antelope Valley and downtown Los Angeles at Patriotic Hall; through L.A. County GAIN, GROW and REAS for people transitioning from public assistance to the workplace, and in our range of innovative donor-supported programs.
