Since its founding in 1985, Shelter Partnership has been a leader in the fight to end homelessness in Los Angeles County. Shelter Partnership accomplishes its mission through the following activities:
providing technical assistance to community-based organizations and public agencies (helping these agencies to be awarded more than $1 billion in federal funds in the past 18 years);
conducting research and publishing analytical studies to inform public policy;
promoting community education; and
operating the S. Mark Taper FoundationShelter Resource Bank, soliciting large-scale donations of merchandise and ensuring that these items are delivered to the people and agencies who need them.
Staff is friendly and informative. Offered a tour with history of how it came to be. Tasks had easy to follow instructions and it felt good knowing that everyone's work is for a great cause. They offered break time and refreshments. I enjoyed what I was doing so the break wasn't entirely necessary because time flew by so quickly! I plan to volunteer there again, in fact I would love to make it to as many events as I can. Thank you so much to the staff for allowing me to take part in such a kind act. Whoever is reading this, I hope you take volunteering for them into high consideration, you won't regret it! Be blessed.
