Our HFLA partner The People Concern (formerly Santa Monica Homeless Shelter) provides supportive services to over 1,900 people living in Permanent Supportive Housing throughout Los Angeles County. Given the current recommendations from public health agencies, it is unsafe for many of them to go outside due to age or underlying health conditions. Additionally, we are seeing increased demand for our services and meals across our 24-hour and drop-in programs. The food security of our program participants is at stake. Please click HERE for the service guide!

Hope for LA is excited to partner with Helping Hands Community! It’s a new nonprofit organization dedicated to serving those most vulnerable to COVID_19. They have a platform that connects at-risk community members with local volunteers for support with critical errands like grocery shopping or pharmacy visits, enabling them to stay home, safe. They’ve also built this platform with scale in mind. It can work anywhere in the country, so long as there are volunteers signed up and people requesting support through the website. If you have a loved one or know of anyone in your community that would benefit from extra support, please share this initiative with them or place a request on their behalf through the Helping Hands Community website. You can also volunteer to help deliver HERE! 


HFLA is excited to partner with Deed & Truth to help furnish homes for formerly homeless families moving into new homes. Requesting volunteers who are interested in serving as needs arise. Typically, this activity happens on Saturdays from 1 pm – 4 pm. Please reach out to or for more information.
