La Puente has been fighting to alleviate the effects of poverty for decades. Today, La Puente is on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Now more than ever, La Puente’s essential services are needed by a growing number in our community. We cannot continue operating without your help!

Beginning March 16, La Puente took measures to continue to meet the needs of our community while taking proactive community health precautions.   COVID 19 poses a risk to us all, but especially to the most vulnerable.  Our community is strong and we can help one another get through this pandemic.
