About Us:

Project Ropa is a small nonprofit organization on a mission to reduce waste and restore dignity to those in need by providing clothing and hygiene essentials.

Project Ropa operates the only Mobile Clothing Closet of its kind in the Los Angeles area. On a bi-weekly basis our retrofitted van delivers hope as well as hygiene kits, drinking water and a full selection of adult clothing, shoes and accessories all neatly displayed on racks and shelves to unhoused and low-income individuals and families at service sites in the Los Angeles area. At each location we operate in tandem with other mobile service providers which can include showers, ID replacement, food pantries, medical and dental clinics and employment and housing resources.

Volunteer Duties:

Volunteers will help with organize clothes, creating hygiene kits and assist with stocking our van for our direct services. We have volunteer shifts available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 9am-2:30pm and on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month from 10am-1pm.

All volunteers must be at least 18 years old.

Please note: We are only able to accommodate up to five volunteers at a time in our warehouse. We are unable to accommodate larger groups.

About Project Ropa

Location:

Mission Statement

The mission of Project Ropa is to reduce waste and restore dignity to those in need by providing clothing and hygiene essentials.

Description

An Overview: Who We Are

Project Ropa, is a Los Angeles-based non-profit and certified social enterprise, paving the way towards a more compassionate, sustainable world. At its core, Project Ropa is a mobile clothing closet delivering premium, hand-selected apparel and shoes to people in need. We work to give a second life to items originally destined for landfills. In doing so, Project Ropa empowers lives, providing individuals with hygiene essentials and high-quality clothing and shoes that can open doors to future opportunities.

Our Approach: The Power of Love

Project Ropa's approach to serving our clients is deeply rooted in the concept of the intrinsic value and unlimited potential of their lives. Instead of seeing people as problems to be solved, Project Ropa views each individual as a person with unique aspirations and contributions. Many of the individuals served by Project Ropa are working to secure employment, improve their health, and maintain stable housing. Project Ropa is there to support them at every step of their journey.

Each client is welcomed to shop from our mobile clothing closet and offered one-to-one service. Project Ropa's team members work diligently to help clients find clothing they'll be proud to wear - clean, stylish, and hand-picked. This level of personalized care may require time and attention, but it is where the real impact happens. It's care that restores hope, and the clients deeply appreciate it.
