ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Founded in 2003, A Better LA (ABLA) aims to transform LA’s troubled communities into safe places and to provide other inner-cities with a research-based model for transformation. ABLA blends two approaches; hiring outreach workers to provide direct services, while also funding and providing guidance to these outreach workers’ grassroots organizations.

GRANT PURPOSE

The West Athens-Westmont Demonstration Project  trains community outreach workers, provides supportive services, and engages stakeholders in a local taskforce.
