ABOUT ALEXANDRIA HOUSE: Alexandria House is a transitional residence and house of hospitality providing safe and supportive housing for women and children in the process of moving from emergency shelter to economic stability and permanent housing. Located in the densely populated and ethnically diverse Mid-Wilshire area, Alexandria House also serves its broader neighborhood community by providing educational and enrichment opportunities for the residents and neighbors alike.

You'll help with gardening, organizing the garage, cleaning the kitchen, sorting food and clothing, and preparing activities for neighborhood events.
