Welcome to the SW Community Center located in Santa volunteer4Ana, CA


Our Mission...
We provide food, clothing, shelter, guidance, health and referral services to economically disadvantaged individuals and families, and assist and encourage those whom we serve to achieve self-sufficiency.

2015 Update 

For the first time in over 40 years, we face the real possibility of reducing services to our clients. The need is increasing, but our contributions are only about half of last year.

$$$$$$ Fifty Dollars Can Bring $$$$$$
Miracles to the Lives of Those In Need
What, you may ask, does your donation do for the homeless and low-income individuals and families who receive help from Southwest Community Center? Well, a donation of $50.00 provides:
