Sisters of Watts is a grassroots organization that strives to address the immediate needs of families in the South Los Angeles community of Watts.

Promoting Positive Relationships and Community Unity

Sisters of Watts

Sisters of Watts was founded by two lifelong residents of this South Los Angeles community, siblings Robin and Keisha Daniels. The organization is committed to equipping Watts residents with the knowledge, skills, and resources that can help foster community unity, strong families, and self-sufficiency. The organization offers diverse programming which includes youth development, services for older adults, food and school backpack giveaways, an annual baby shower event for pregnant teens, and community clean-up days.

When the COVID-19 global crisis reached Los Angeles in March of 2020, Sisters of Watts rapidly honed its services on the pressing needs prompted by school closures, widespread unemployment, and rising health concerns. Sisters of Watts assembled a corps of volunteers to deliver groceries and other essential goods to older adults and high-risk individuals with underlying health conditions. In June of 2020, Sisters of Watts partnered with East Side Riders Bike Club, another Watts-based organization, to distribute free lunches to community youth every weekday for the summer months.
