Welcome to LA Neighbors for Neighbors.
We are a volunteer-led organization fighting for housing justice in LA.
Unhoused Angelenos live disconnected from basic survival needs, and the city of LA constantly displaces our unhoused neighbors through violent sweeps. We work to bring folks back together through a once-a-month resource center that provides folks with basic survival needs. Since transportation is a huge hurdle for unhoused folks, we also provide direct transportation to and from encampments for all our guests.
At our past resource centers we were able to provide the following services and supplies for our guests: IDs, phones, sign-ups for CalFresh, mental health support, medical check-ups, vaccines, haircuts, showers, laundry services, meals, groceries, clothing, blankets, pet supplies, harm reduction supplies, art supplies, & much more. It is our goal to get as many services and resources as possible in one place.
Our unhoused neighbors experience a lot of trauma at the hands of the state and even fellow neighbors. As we grow our resource center, we plan to provide resources that promote self-love and healing. We want to build power with our neighbors by connecting them with organizations that uplift and fight for the rights of unhoused Angelenos. In the future, we hope to create spaces for skill shares and focus on building community.
If you have a skill, resource, or supply that you think would help our efforts, please reach out to us via email at [email protected].
Lastly, our work includes a lot of thoughtful outreach. This includes visiting encampments to do check-ins and provide supplies, following up with folks that have received housing, making appointments, taking people to their doctors’ appointments, monitoring the city of LA’s brutal sweeps, and much more.
We are always looking for volunteers to join our Outreach Team or Resource Center Team. Please email us to get connected.
Our ultimate goal is fair and free housing for all. On a short term basis, we work to connect people to the things they need and build power.
How we plan to use our funds.
1. Paying for service providers.
Some of the service providers we work with require payment. Your financial contribution will help get those service providers there.
2. Purchasing survival supplies.
We hand out survival supplies at our resource center and while doing outreach. These include, but are not limited to the following: tents, sleeping bags, clothing, food, water, hygiene supplies, harm reduction supplies, cooking supplies, etc.
3. Maintaining our current work & supporting our volunteers.
We need storage space for our items, rental vans, software that helps to make our work easier, gas money, etc.
