HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

When our youth transition off the streets and into transitional/permanent housing, many are lacking the basic necessities to set up a comfortable space to call their own. From sheets and towels to pillows and placements, our Welcome Home Helpers assist our youth in turning a house into a home. Click here for more information on how to get involved in this exciting program!

DESCRIPTION

My Friend’s Place continues to meet the needs of thousands of youth through our mission to assist and inspire homeless youth to build self-sufficient lives. With a staff of more than 30 and the support of more than 1,000 volunteers a year, My Friend's Place remains dedicated to ending youth homelessness both in our community and beyond.

Shop our amazon wish list and help create a gift basket for youth experiencing homelessness!

While our building is located at 5850 Hollywood Blvd., donations are accepted through the back parking lot, which is accessible via the alley just south of the 76 gas station on at Bronson and Hollywood Blvd. You are welcome to pull into our lot and park in any space. Once you’re in the lot, ring the buzzer at the glass door atop the stairs. We accept the donations through the first floor so no need to bring them up the stairs with you.
