Urban Partners Los Angeles is a 501(c)(3) devoted to improving the lives of people who live in the Koreatown / Westlake sections of the city of Los Angeles. We teach English to adults, help kids improve math skills, and distribute groceries to those in need–we’ve given out more than 150,000 bags of food since 2008! We also offer exercise and nutrition classes, we organize field trips for children in our neighborhoods, and we bring together members of the community and civic leaders so that we continue to grow our connection to our neighbors and help them get the services they need.
