The basic philosophy of One Voice is simple: each of us can make a difference and together we can create a community of caring to help those in need. One Voice helps families living at poverty level within our community. Their programs range from providing emergency relief services to families in immediate crisis to a scholars program designed to better the quality of people’s lives.
One Voice has three key areas of programming:
- The Scholars Program prepares and places low income inner city Los Angeles high school students in esteemed colleges throughout the United States such as Amherst, Brown, MIT, Wellesley, Yale, Swarthmore and Stanford. 100% of One Voice scholars gain admission to college and an impressive 95% graduate from college with 30% continuing on to graduate school.
- The Holiday Food Program provides Christmas food baskets, books and toys to over 2,500 families (12,500 people) living in poverty in the Los Angeles community. Over 2,000 volunteers work together to personally package and distribute toys, books and food to deserving families.
- The Family Assistance Programs are a diverse group of programs that reach out to help families living at poverty level in Los Angeles to improve their lives.
