Description
The Neighborhood Youth Association began as charitable organization under the aegis of the Episcopal Church in 1914. Using a settlement house approach, the Association's oiginal goal was to acculturate immigrants to Los Amgeles' West side neighborhoods to American culture and values. Over the years the Association has broadened its mission to include providing social services and counseling for poor families and teenaged children in the areas around Venice, California, and the Los Angeles port area, particularly in the communities of Carson and San Pedro, California. The bulk of the papers collected here are from the period 1976-1991. They include considerable materials on grants, consortia, and special progams.
