Resources for the Homeless in Los Angeles

As a part of our mission to develop meaningful relationships with the people of Los Angeles, we've put together a list of resources that addresses the major issue of homelessness within our community. This crisis has only gotten worse over the years, and the economic recession will only leave more people and families without housing. There isn't an easy solution, but we believe that as Los Angelinos, it's important to do what we can to support our unhoused neighbors. 

Below is a list of resources for various shelters, food pantries, and other means of support for the homeless. The organizations listed are also great places to donate your money or time to during these difficult times when people need our help most.
