More than showers!
In these years we have been developing other programs to bring hope to the community.
Destination Hope is a program in partnership with City District 1 and LAHSA, that brings Safe Parking Spaces to individuals who are sleeping in their cars, operating in two locations in Westlake and Glassell Park every night. You can access our parking locations through our app, Hope Navigation Center, or by calling (424) 343 – 7752.
Since April 2019, and in a partnership with Councilman Gil Cedillo´s office and Lhasa, we have been operating 2 Lots with 40 spaces to host families and individuals who live in their cars. We have served over 3,500 people and have been working to connect them with services and housing.
Hope Navigation Center is a resource guide, designed as an app and a desktop website, that helps to geo-locate available services such as food, clothing, and showers in Los Angeles. You can find more information about this initiative here.
If you know of any additional resources that could be helpful to the unhoused community, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. so that they can be added.
Hope Housing for Students Program is a interim housing program for community college students experiencing homelessness or housing instabilty. The program launched in August 2020, in partnership with LACCD to provide housing to ELAC students, and now the program has expanded and is available to the following colleges: LA City College, LA Trade Tech College and South West College.
