Salesian Family Youth Center Steps Up During LAUSD Strike

By Luis Chacon

Last week, from Tuesday to Thursday, the workers of LAUSD went on strike, causing all district schools to close. For many parents, this posed a significant challenge as they didn’t have the means to care for their children during the day. As a result, many young students were left without supervision and were at risk of spending the day on the streets.

The Salesian Family Youth Center recognized the need in the community and decided to step up in a big way. They not only opened their doors during regular hours but extended their service hours to ensure that they were there for the children and young people in the community.

By providing a safe and secure environment for the youth, the Salesian Family Youth Center was able to offer a place for children to go during the strike. The Center’s commitment to the well-being of the community highlights the Salesian mission to be a beacon of hope for those in need.

At a time when many families were struggling to find solutions, the Salesian Family Youth Center provided a lifeline for children and their parents. The Salesian community continues to live out its values of service, compassion, and commitment to others, especially in times of need.
