L.A. Works Response to COVID-19

  •  Encouraging all Angelenos who are eligible to get vaccinated.
  •  Implementing health and safety requirements, recommending social distancing protocols are followed.
  •  Shifting on-the-ground programming to focus on urgent needs, like providing meals for food-insecure and COVID-19 vaccination and testing site support.
  •  Creating virtual volunteer opportunities, including a TeleSocial program for isolated homebound Angelenos and remote resume building for the unemployed.

Actions To Get Involved

Volunteer both in-person and virtually to address critical needs in the community will make a huge impact on our fellow Angelenos who are struggling right now. Those who are hungry still need food. Those who are isolated still need companionship. Nonprofits have faced drastic cuts in resources over a time when demands have increased significantly. 

In-Person Hunger Relief

Food banks and pantries esperately need your help to sort donations, package food kits, or deliver meals due to the sharp increase in demand to serve our food insecure neighbors. Distancing and hygiene procedures are noted on each listing

Please DO NOT sign-up for In-Person opportunities if you feel sick or have been near anyone who appears sick or if you are at high-risk for serious illnesss

Virtual Tutors and Mentors for Local Youth


Volunteer virtually to help close the academic achievement gap that these youth are experiencing to help them do more than survive, but to thrive as well

Volunteer From Home


Support Los Angeles from the comfort of your own home. These opportunities are fun, safe, and flexible ways to serve LA remotely.



L.A. Works remains focused on our mission to meet the most pressing needs of our community. We are working tirelessly to safely deploy resources where they are needed most. Even more, we know that our most vulnerable neighbors will suffer the effects of this crisis long after a sense of normalcy is restored for the rest of us. We hope we can count on your support as we navigate these unprecedented times together.
