San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission

Established in an effort to serve the homeless in the greater San Fernando Valley, the roots of the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission grow deep, span over 40 years and were established as an outreach ministry of the Rescue Mission Alliance – a Christian based non-profit organization. Founded in 1998, the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission began as the Rescue Survival Outreach Services (S.O.S.) Program serving meals to the Valley’s homeless. In 2002, the Mission launched the Family Shelter program in a collaborative effort with San Fernando Valley area churches in response to the critical unmet need for a year round emergency shelter. The program has been designed to provide homeless men, women, children and families an opportunity, not only to obtain food, shelter, and basic life necessities, but also provides a foundation for individual and family restoration by developing a personalized plan based on their needs for achieving personal growth, employment, and housing.

California Institute of Locksmithing

California Institute of Locksmithing started its first class in 1972. The Institute has been in continuous operation since that time. California Institute of Locksmithing has the goal to train entry-level locksmiths in the highest standards of the industry. Craftsmanship, ethics and professionalism along with a clear understanding of the job's responsibilities are the techniques taught by the administration and faculty.

Our founder, who felt that a school was needed, that would teach locksmithing as a primary course, fulfilled his dream when the doors opened in 1972.   As of June 28, 1999, the school is owned by Friedman College d.b.a. California Institute of Locksmithing. Friedman College d.b.a. California Institute of Locksmithing wishes to continue the fine education that has been a tradition over the many years of operation.
