Shelter for Homeless Families
Located in Northridge, the new 90-bed family shelter offers hope, shelter and safe, supportive housing to thousands of families who are homeless. The new facility includes private family bedrooms, a commercial kitchen, common dining room and living spaces, meeting rooms, computer education center, playground and garden – all geared toward helping families achieve a brighter future.
This new resource enables the San Fernando Valley to realize a reduction of its homeless population, many of whom are neglected, and underserved. Staff work with families to establish a plan for restoration and self-sufficiency, offering life skills programs and training on-site for up to 10 months, as well as collaborating with other agencies and community resources.
With construction completed and the family shelter now open, it is truly an exciting time for the Mission and our community. We invite you to stop by for a visit, consider volunteering, and to donate to this important ‘home’ within the community.
