  • About

    Toberman Neighborhood Center was founded in 1903 by James and Emma Toberman as a memorial to their only son Homer, who passed away at age 29. James came to Los Angeles in 1864 when he was assigned here to be an IRS tax assessor by President Abraham Lincoln. James then became the Mayor of the city of Los Angeles from 1872 to 1874 and from 1878 to 1882.The organization was first located in Echo Park and was originally named Homer Toberman Mission. As one of the oldest Methodist Mission projects, Toberman provided an infirmary, a residence for single women, youth development and prevention services. In 1917, the organization moved to Boyle Heights and operated as an original settlement house. In 1937, Toberman made another move to the Barton Hill community in San Pedro, where it remains today and adopted a new name Toberman Settlement House. Since that time Toberman has kept pace with the changing and diverse needs of the Harbor community. In October of 2007, Toberman welcomed the grand opening of its newly built 36,000 square foot campus and became Toberman Neighborhood Center.
