HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Many families experiencing homelessness have no belongings. This means they need everything from shampoo to toothpaste to new socks. By providing hygiene items and/or household items for these families, you can bring a big relief to those working to get back on their feet.

DESCRIPTION

How do we end the cycle of family poverty and homelessness?

Imagine LA prevents first-time and repeat homelessness and equips families to maintain housing stability and thrive long-term.

Together with families we transform lives through a unique combination of clinical case management, financial wellness pathways and whole-family mentorship.

Many families have no belongings. This means they need everything from shampoo to new socks.

Collect much needed hygiene items for families experiencing homelessness.
