Client after client and day after day, the Good Seed is transforming lives. Here are just a few testimonials of the power of our work.

“My experience at Good Seed was very positive and motivating. The staff was friendly, helpful, and gave good advice. I learned lot of things during my stay here especially from the groups we had. I learned about the effect of drugs, STDs, money management and much more. I was able to save money and transfer to permanent housing. I can say, thanks to Good Seed my future is looking a lot brighter.”

“When you are younger, people tell you that you need a foundation to grow and to become someone who can help the world. At Good Seed, you find that foundation. If not with staff, then with the clients here. Everyone here is supportive and allows you to be yourself as long as you’re bettering yourself. The Good Seed allows you to find brotherhood and even though you’re in an uncomfortable position they give you a hand to get to the next step or your next goal. With all that being said, my experience at the Good Seed was a good one, and I hope that everyone that comes here allows themselves to be helped and guided to their next step.”

Here is what our community partners have to say about us!

“We have had the pleasure of working with the Good Seed staff over the past five years, and have always experienced them to be highly professional and courteous. Good Seed is the first resource we turn to when we have youth in need of their services, and always feel confident that the youth are in very capable and caring hands.”

Peter Balderas

Director of Full Service Partnership, Children's Hospital Los Angeles

“As a firm advocate for supporting low-income families’ efforts to attain financial stability, I am aware of the effects that homelessness and other risk factors have on family unification and stability. Good Seed provides youth with access to wrap around services that help preserve families and decrease the number of youth at risk.”

Senator Holly J. Mitchell

“It is very important for us to have local partners who we are confident can provide the longer term, comprehensive case management support needed to help clients overcome barriers to accessing services. For the past two years, 211 LA County has had a positive and collaborative relationship with Good Seed Church of God in Christ, Inc. We have found Good Seed services to be reliable and responsive, and this is particularly important because they serve a part of the County with a high need for their services. We have also found them to be very proactive in helping to build a collaborative and coordinated approach to assisting youth to lessen the challenge of accessing services that are too often disconnected or confusing to navigate.”

Maribel Marin

Executive Director, 211 LA County

“They (Good Seed) have the ability to work with a diverse base of Transition Age Youth. When we have encountered SED/SPMI TAY, they have been our first point of contact to get our TAY on a path to housing stability and many more were able to connect to employment services that helped to improve their self-esteem and self-worth.”

Janet Kelly

Executive Director, Sanctuary of Hope

“I have had multiple clients go through the doors at Good Seed and walked into a situation of stability and support. Through the services and collaboration with Good Seed, we were able to move our clientele into permanency placement and onto a path of continued movement towards wellness and recovery.”
