Homeless Street Outreach
Our volunteers engage unhoused people one-on-one on Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles, and wherever our mission takes us through Los Angeles County.
We distribute water, food, shoes, socks, new and used clothing, and personal toiletries. When possible, we also offer access to services which require a high-speed internet connection via laptop or cell phone.
Community Food Distributions
Los Angeles is home to a rapidly growing number of people struggling with food insecurity. Many of these individuals and families are not unhoused, and in fact do include at least one family member who is employed. However, soaring costs and housing shortages now result in many working Angelenos as well as unhoused people in need of food and other essential support.
We offer packaged foods as well as fresh fruits and vegetables, clothing, when available, we offer diapers, formula and other baby essentials. Free of charge throughout Los Angeles County to those in need.
Connecting those in need with available services requires internet access, which our multi-lingual, multi-cultural volunteers provide via laptop. We may be able to assist individuals in re-establishing contact with a community, family member, social worker, teacher, employer, or mentor who is able to offer support.
We tutor in literacy and basic math, and offer referrals for employment, job training, substance abuse, as well as filing for available benefits.
We are dedicated to putting our community first. Our Community Outreach program provides a much-needed service for those in dire need. Lend a helping hand and join our efforts today.
Through our housing program, we have the potential to make real and positive change. This is one of our key areas of focus here at Gracie’s Giving Hands, and a source of much success for our Non-Profit Organization. Ensuring unhoused individuals with housing.
The Pet Connection
Some unhoused people have cherished pets with them for comfort and company. With this in mind, we appreciate donations of dry dog kibble, doggie bags, dog beds, dog blankets, collars, and leashes.
Dogs are more common than cats on our streets, but we also accept donations of cat supplies (cat food, cat litter).
Our tutoring program offers a much-desired platform for the children who need it most. Become a part of a brighter future and join our efforts today.
