About My New House

Location:

3300 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 216, Los Angeles, CA 90010, US

Mission Statement

The mission of My New House is to enhance the quality of life of individuals and families focusing mainly on the aid and struggles of single mothers by providing access to basic needs and services so that they can enjoy a life of dignity.

Description

My New House is a 100% volunteer-based organization that started its journey in June 2016 with the development of a thrift store. People buy new and gently used clothes, shoes, housewares, life accessories, and furniture at very affordable prices. With the help of fundraisers, My New House allocates money to help single mothers who struggle to pay utility bills. The eligible single-parenting households benefit from receiving a year relief of gas or electricity expenses. The name "New House" reflects the ambition that the people we will serve will eventually have a new house and that this new house will be better than the old one. Our final goal is the development of a resource center where individuals will benefit from receiving all kinds of services such as a dental clinic, psychological assistance, a food bank, a thrift store, etc.
