Community Resources

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18 ESV

We all face situations in life where we need care and support. In some cases, our situation is unique, desperate, and requires the attention of more immediate and professional help. We know that in these times it can be difficult to even know where to begin – but we can help!

Below is a list of organizations specializing in crisis and counseling situations. When contacting any organization, it is important to make an independent assessment of their organization and their qualifications. Please note that Praise Community Church does not warrant the competence or services of any of these organizations.

If you happen to be in need of something not shown on this page and need immediate help,
please call us at (626) 858-5288.
