The mission of LA CAN (Los Angeles Community Action Network) is to help people dealing with poverty create and discover opportunities while serving as a vehicle to ensure they have voice, power, and opinion in the decisions that are directly affecting them. LA CAN’s constituency consists of extremely low-income and homeless people, primarily those living in Downtown LA and South-Central LA. LA CAN recruits organizational members and builds indigenous leadership within this constituency to promote human rights and address multiple forms of oppression faced by extremely low-income, predominately African-American and Latino, residents.

This grant is for general support.
