Bresee’s mission is to battle poverty by empowering youth and families in Los Angeles with the skills, resources, and relationships necessary to thrive.
Since its early days, Bresee has evolved significantly to support the continued needs of youth and families in the LA community. In 2001, our organization was able to purchase and renovate the 15,000-square-foot facility where Bresee is still housed today. Today, Bresee is a vibrant community center serving more than 3,000 youth and family members each year. Bresee is proud to provide the Los Angeles community with numerous programs that encourage the growth of young people and their families.
