You have inspired us to be more innovative as we maneuver with confidence through this time of uncertainty with ways to continue providing our emergency services (hot meals, showers, a safe place to sleep, etc.), 12-step recovery, family living, job training, education, and workforce development programs to our community. Our community needs our help now more than ever.You can help by donating the following items.We are serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner “take-out” meals to our community every day. The number of people we are serving is continuing to increase as other feeding programs have reduced or discontinued services.
With our increased diligence in keeping surfaces disinfected and clean, we are going through supplies much more rapidly than before, and resupplying has become problematic because of the current hoarding.

The Need: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, unhoused and recently housed families are experiencing added stress and uncertainty as they navigate the demands of work, education, children, services, and more. Every day, families are asking for resources related to family fun and basic needs.
The Initiative: As part of Imagine LA’s response to COVID-19, we are leading a county-wide effort to ensure that each of the 6,000 families served by the Los Angeles Homeless Provider Alliance Family Service Providers Caucus, has the family fun and basic needs resources to thrive as a family during this time.
The Goal: To collect 6,000 Family Fun & Care Packages to distribute to unhoused and recently housed families.

We distribute food WEEKLY in the poorest area of Van Nuys, an urban neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley. Two of our four weeks are very limited in both what we can give out, and how much we can give each household. We have started a food drive, since many of the items our households need are already restricted in quantities at our local stores:Rice, Beans, canned meats, canned fruits, canned vegetables.We have limited refrigerator space, but we can take long-storing vegetables like potatoes and onions, and we can take citrus fruits while last longer.Bring items Mon-Fri 8:30 am - 4:30 pm to our Gilmore entrance and look for the sign that says "Leave Food Here". We have a volunteer nearby who is checking in often to move items indoors, so your donation will be effectively used. If you need to make an appointment, please email [email protected] or text 925-708-6961
