Welcome to the Family Rescue Center. We are a Christian faith-based, volunteer group. Our energy, our compassion, and love are committed to the less fortunate as Jesus commanded us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Family Rescue Center exists to meet the needs of the hungry, low-income families and the homeless in our community by providing food, clothing and other essential services. Join us on this mission to fight hunger and enrich lives.
Founded as Rescate in 1998 as a ministry of Canoga Park Presbyterian Church, Family Rescue Center became an independent 501 (c) 3 non-profit in 2003. Partnering with West Valley Food Pantry since 2001, they provide most of our non-perishable food as sourced though the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, food purchases, and donated food. Eligibility for Family Rescue Center's services is solely based on lack of sufficient income.
