*LEND A HAND: Provide Support to Transitional Families

Location: Los Angeles CA, 90020

Date: 6/14/2020 Spots Remaining: -2


Founded in 1996, Alexandria House is a transitional residence and house of hospitality providing safe and supportive housing for women and children in the process of moving from emergency shelter to economic stability and permanent housing. Located in the densely populated and ethnically diverse Mid-Wilshire area, Alexandria House also serves its broader neighborhood community by providing educational and enrichment opportunities for the residents and neighbors alike.

Program Description: In response to the compelling needs of the women and children living in the house, as well as the neighborhood needs before us each day, the goal of Alexandria House is to be a community-oriented transitional house and neighborhood center which is intentionally multicultural, anti-racist and where the needs of women who are economically poor are central. We are supported by a community of caring individuals and groups who share our mission.

Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities: L.A. Works volunteers support the staff at Alexandria House in maintaining a safe and positive atmosphere for the woman and children living there. Volunteers help with gardening, organizing the garage, cleaning the kitchen, sorting food and clothing, and preparing activities for neighborhood events.



Time Commitment: 3 hours.

Requirements: Volunteers for this project must be at least 18 years of age.
