SOAR - Northridge Chapter

Northridge became part of the SOAR family in August 2021. Northridge is in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles County. The community is home to California State University, Northridge, the Northridge Fashion Center, as well as Los Angeles’ former historic roller-skating rink, Northridge Skateland. Originally named Zelzah by settlers in 1908, the community was renamed North Los Angeles in 1929, but this caused confusion between North Hollywood and Los Angeles. In 1938, civic leaders decided to rename the community to Northridge Village, which morphed into modern-day Northridge. Northridge touches Porter Ranch and Granada Hills on the north, North Hills on the east, Van Nuys on the southeast, Lake Balboa and Reseda on the south, and Winnetka and Chatsworth on the west.
