Western Center focuses on increasing the supply of affordable housing, preserving the existing supply of low-income housing, and preventing homelessness; implementing health care reform, extending coverage to the uninsured and indigent, expanding mental health services, and stopping illegal debt collection practices; advocating for Californians served by CalWORKs, CalFresh, SSI and General Relief, and other critical programs; due process rights and language access issues and ensuring that legal services programs will be fairly paid for their work. Western Center, California’s oldest and largest legal services support center, was created in 1967 by a passionate group of attorneys and legal scholars from USC, UCLA and Loyola law schools.
