Under The Bridges And On The Streets

The following was pre-Covid, now we are working with fewer volunteers on three different weekends throughout the month. I encourage volunteers to respond to what they are comfortable doing:
1. All in, making and delivering to the homeless
2. Preparing the lunches only, at this time.

Also, we are no longer accepting volunteers under the age of 18 ( for now )



Our all-volunteer "Under The Bridges and On The Streets" program prepares and distributes food, clothing, and personal care items directly to those on the streets, serving the homeless population of Los Angeles. We prepare nutritious bagged meals and deliver them along with personal care products, new clothing, and blankets with an awareness of the heart.

We serve the homeless on the streets, where they live, which includes the elderly, men, women, and children.

Besides assisting the homeless, we also provide the experience of hands-on direct service for volunteers.

A special aspect of our program is that we physically take food to the homeless, where they live, Under the Bridges and On the Streets. This often takes us into alleys, empty lots, and other places where the homeless congregate. We personalize our service whenever possible, whether providing meatless sandwiches for vegetarians, turkey sandwiches for homeless Muslims, or sugar-free treats for diabetics.
