Your financial support is essential to us. While we receive grants for the program portion of our operation (food, motel vouchers, rental assistance, camperships), we rely on donations for staffing our programs, insurance, building maintenance and all other operating costs. Donations can be made on line or by sending checks to our mailing address:

Your volunteer help is essential to us. Volunteers run the Pantry, The Women’s Room, assist with the Stay Healthy program and provide meals for the Bad Weather Shelter. Volunteers maintain our building, work in our garden and raise funds for us. We need you!
Special Volunteer Needs
Drivers: To pick up food from the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank (once a month on Fridays) or local grocery stores like Whole Foods (Friday mornings), Costco (Saturday mornings), and other potential sources. For local pick-up, the size of donations can vary, but a car with a big trunk, any SUV, van, or pick-up is sufficient. For the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank pick-up, two cars or a van or truck would be necessary as these orders are much larger. If you are interested, please call or email our Pantry Director at email@example.com or (626) 797-6072.
Stockers: To stock shelves, unload deliveries, sort and bag food, and assist clients in the pantry. Email our Pantry Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (626) 797-6072.
A list of foods needed for the pantry is found in the Pantry section of this website.
Lunch providers: We need groups to provide a healthy lunch for The Women’s Room once a month. Hot soup, drinks, vegetables, dessert for 20. For details and to sign up, email Tara at email@example.com
