Description: North Valley Caring Services (NVCS) serves the poorest communities in the San Fernando Valley. The median household income is $33,669; which is $10,000 less than the average for Los Angeles County, and $17,000 less than the average for the San Fernando Valley. With approximately 19,000 residents in just 1.5 square miles, North Hills’ Langdon/Orion Street area (where NVCS is located) is one of the most densely populated areas of Los Angeles County. Many families consist of recent Central and Latin American immigrants, who speak little or no English. For many years, the neighborhood has been portrayed by police and the media as an example of poverty, neglect, violence, drug trafficking, fractured families and gang rule. The neighborhood has very high rates of substance abuse arrests, child protective services interventions, and school drop outs.
