Non-profits that are taking the lead in fighting homelessness and domestic abuse
The People Concern believes no one should have to live on the street or in a violent household. Our staff, volunteers and those we serve work together to address the effects of homelessness, poverty, mental and physical illness, abuse and addiction. Our programs empower the most vulnerable among us to improve their quality of life – housed, healthy and safe -- and become active participants in the community. We also work to educate the broader community and improve public policy.
1736 Family Crisis Center’s mission is to comprehensively help children, women, men and families through crisis circumstances, including domestic violence and human trafficking, homelessness, abuse, neglect, substance use, poverty and post-traumatic stress disorder and distress, and to improve their prospects for long-term housing, safety, survival, financial stability and success. 1736 Family Crisis Center was founded in 1972 as a community outreach effort to shelter homeless youth. Their services expanded in 1981 when they opened an emergency domestic violence shelter, and their services have continued to expand throughout greater Los Angeles in response to community need. Today, they operate a wide range of programs and services, directly serving 6000 individuals annually.
Stella and Luna has been partnering with a single mother’s shelter to host free, jewelry-making classes led by our founder. All materials and instructions are provided courtesy of Stella and Luna. These classes come at no cost to the shelter and are a fun and engaging service to provide! If you are a shelter interested in starting these classes at your own location, please fill out the form below!
