This is a good article on the identity of South LA. Because of the lack of identity a the community of "South LA" being such a big area, it is hard for this area to get resources. I think that we have experienced this as well being down here. Many ministries and organizations in South LA have a harder time accepting volunteers because help is so scarce in this area. We're praying for more resources in this area as well.
