About Our Services

Drew CDC offers many services to ensure that low-income families thrive, thereby building strong, diverse communities throughout Watts and South Los Angeles. Drew CDC’s services are integrated to support the whole family unit’s needs, especially during critical periods of development.

We help families secure gainful employment, address mental health challenges, and educate families and professionals about trauma so they can care for and minimize the re-traumatization of our community members.

Through public and private funding from federal and state government, the County of Los Angeles, foundations, corporations, and individual donors, Drew CDC creates customized and centralized family child care systems to ensure all families succeed.
