LA Shares is a non-profit materials reuse program which takes donations of reusable goods and materials (both new and used) and redistributes these items free of charge to non-profits and schools throughout Los Angeles County.

This profile is then entered into their unique, relational database, which proactively identifies each organization’s needs and continuously seeks to match those needs with the donated items on record. When a need is matched, the recipient is notified, via e-mail, to come to one of our two area warehouses to retrieve their items or instructed to go directly to the donor for pick-up. Either way, this state-of-the-art system is designed to help schools and non-profits obtain needed items quickly.

The Delores Project provides safe, comfortable overnight shelter and services to unaccompanied adult women who are homeless and have limited resources. The model of service is one of hospitality, respect, and regard for the dignity of each guest. Every night The Delores Project ensures that at least 50 women are safely off the streets — women who might otherwise face the risk of physical danger and illness that comes with living on the streets. By providing transitional support services in addition to emergency shelter, The Delores Project assists women in developing the skills and resources necessary to stay off the streets and move towards stability.
