About A Sense of Home

Location:

3457 W. El Segundo Blvd., VENICE, CA 90291, US

Mission Statement

A Sense of Home (ASOH) creates first homes for youth who age out of the foster care system by bringing together virtually every segment of the community in doing social good while deriving great value in return.

Description

We host home creations up to 3 times per week. Home creations are a 90-minute team building event for large corporations, families, friends, or service organizations. A Sense of Home provides all furniture and decor and the volunteer team helps put together a new home for the aged out foster youth. Once the creation is over, the recipient who lives at the home comes back for the reveal.

We also need volunteer teams for our warehouse. We get new donations every week and need help unboxing, creating home decor kits, and organizing children's items!
