The P.F. Bresee Foundation's (Bresee's) history dates back 30 years, when in 1982, members of the Los Angeles First Church of the Nazarene established P.F. Bresee Foundation as a separate, non-sectarian 501(c)(3) to address the social needs of the community. Bresee's facility houses three homework and tutoring classrooms, art, dance and music studios, a 28-station technology lab, a multimedia studio, and a youth recreation room; sports and recreation are also facilitated at the adjacent park and neighboring gym.
The Bresee Foundation's mission is to provide comprehensive after-school programs and family services that equip young people to pursue their education, achieve their full potential, and serve others.
Bresee envisions a central Los Angeles community transformed by character-driven, creative, college-educated Bresee Foundation alumni.
