South Los Angeles/Broadway-Manchester

The Broadway-Manchester community is a part of the South LA region. Within this region, more resources and infrastructure are typically found in communities in the northern area. Broadway-Manchester, in the southern area of the region, is not as well-served as other areas, but does share regional service providers, capacity and infrastructure. Community leaders have come together to address issues such as child welfare reform, depression, community and economic development, housing, educational reform, public safety and health access. The faith-based community is particularly strong in the South LA region and strives to provide a multitude of social services to residents, in addition to religious support and guidance.

Community leadership in the South Los Angeles region, which includes Broadway-Manchester, is described as “dedicated, passionate, hardworking, grassroots, invigorated against all odds and strength-based.”
