Hello my name is Kookie Williams, Director of LATTC Veterans Resource Center. Our center works with Veterans and their families that are attending college. Our Vets live off of money they receive for attending school and holidays are rough. Shelter Partners have provided toys to our center for the past 6 years. Last year was great. Our Vet club bought Tablets for 15 of our older children and the toys we received from Shelter Partners we were able to provide to items to each Vets child. With the toys I asked the campus employees to purchase shoes for the younger children. We were able to give out toys, shoes and some outfits to 63 children under age of 10. Shelter Partners has been a blessing to our Vets and their children.
Here at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College, the Shelter Partnership Inc. has helped us put smiles on over 200 children's faces. On our campus we serve over 1200 veterans. For the past 3 years Shelter Partners has provided to toys to our campus to give to the children of Student Veterans. A lot times our Vets are Full time Students, that rely on their GI Bill to pay rent, food, utilities and child care. Some may not be able to pay Christmas gifts . With help of Shelter Partnership we were able to provide toys and meal to the Veterans and their Children. I feels good a child smile over what we think is a simple toys. it means a lot to them. Here at LATTC we appreciate Shelter Partners Inc for what they do for our community. Thanks Kookie Williams

Shelter Partnership Inc has been instrumental in helping us provide basic goods for former foster youth over the years. They are always quick to respond to special requests that youth might have, specially over the holidays. Their staff is always helpful and friendly.
Shelter Partnership has been great to us. They have consistently provided hygiene, clothes, and so many other goodies for the former foster youth who are in our program. Their staff is always extremely helpful and they are always available to answer our questions. Keep up the great work!
All the donations of clothing, socks and hygiene products that come from Shelter Partnership Inc. help our clients who otherwise are not financially able to afford new things.
The donations bring joy and happiness to every individual, children and families that we serve through our food pantry here in Glendale.
Every quarter, Catholic Charities - Glendale Loaves & Fishes receives different valuable items as donations that are distributed among our clients. The donations makes a world of difference to the families and homeless individuals that we serve.
I would like to share a small memory that helped and touched the hearts of our clients. While donating a new pair of shoes (sneakers) to our homeless client, the client smiled and wept then said that he hasn’t worn a new pair of shoes in the last five years. Every toy, clothing item and shoes that we gave out to children, families and homeless clients, not only fulfilled their needs but added joy and happiness to their lives. This would not have been possible without the generosity and act of kindness of Shelter Partnership Inc.
Thank you so much!
P.S. Attached is the photo of our client, wearing the new sneakers.
Shelter Partnership has had a positive impact on many people's lives. For over 20 years, I've been a social services provider who has had the pleasure of helping people in need. I am employed at a non-profit housing developer what provides supportive services to the low-income and formerly homeless families with children who reside at the apartments. When families have lived in crisis and don't have the financial resources, they are basically able to move into housing but that's all. Families are so grateful when they receive items that help them to settle into their new homes. Items such as mattresses, pillow cases, new clothes, dental floss, diapers for the babies are very important to have. It has been my pleasure to facilitate the distribution of Shelter Partnership items. These donations serve as engagement tools to develop relationships with residents. The donations serves as a means to let families know that help is available. And, the donations help put smiles on children's faces when they receive a new toy. Forever grateful for your services.
The Salvation Army Westwood has been going to Shelter Partnership for years. They have always greeted us warmly, had our orders ready to go and have even helped us load our van. The items provided are very helpful to our homeless families and give us an opportunity to provide more for them in household goods, toiletries, clothing, shoes and other items. We love Shelter Partnership and all they do to help those in need.
Shelter Partnership donations help us incentivise our programs, and provide basic needs to the homeless and unstably housed. Their system is clear and starighforward and allows for easy ordering. They help us relieve the burden of requesting donations from companies. As a healthcare non profit we prescribe a wide range of solutions to our clients, from exercise, nutrition, and other healthy living suggestions. Shelter Partnership has provided bed so people can get better sleep, kitchen utensils for cooking, yoga mats we can provide for exercise activities and more.
Shelter Partnerships donation have aided many of our programs and services for many years. Working in healthcare in Los Angeles communities means treating not only a persons ailments. Being able to offer hygeine items, clothes, children's toys, and so much more goes a long way with our clients. It is great to offer a child waiting with his/her parent a small toy. Or to have clothes on hand to offer someone in need. Shelter Partnership has truly been a partner and we look forward to continuing to work with them.
My experience at this nonprofit has been Great! They have given me a lot of things that i am very grateful for. I am currently expecting my third child. They have provided me with a pak and play (baby bed), a baby bouncer, a play pin, diapers and many other baby items. As well as clothes for me and my other two children. So this program has been awesome.
The donations that Shelter Partnership provides, such as shoes, socks and hygiene products, provides much needed living essentials to those most in need-the homeless. But it also provides them with something that has no monetary value.. a second chance. Thank you Shelter Partnership for caring, for believing, for being part of the Antelope Valley family. Without your help, our AV Connect days would not be possible; and for that we are extremely grateful.
On behalf of the Volunteer League of the SFV, we would like to thank Shelter Partnership for their wonderful donations. The items we received were perfect for the children that we serve who desperately need clothing to attend school confidently and without shame. Most of our clients our low income, homeless and students from Title 1 schools . We are a non profit organization that depend on donations and supporters like you, thank you for you service to the community.
We are a small nonprofit that operates within the greater Los Angles area. We serve primarily homeless individuals and our funding only allows for delivery of our primary services. We were referred to Shelter Partnerships from another homeless service agency and we recently ordered from their store and picked up our first round of goods. Having the supplies they gifted us with has been such an amazing addition to our services. Not only did they provide us with basic needs items like shoes, socks, carry bags and hygiene products but extra luxury items like make-up. Our participants have been so thankful and pleased with the items they receive. Thank you Shelter Partnerships for helping us show love and make their lives a little more comfortable. You are providing a wonderful service.
On behalf of Restoration Community Development Corporation, I would like to thank Shelter Partnership for its generous donations! Your support provides needed items to people experiencing homelessness in South Los Angeles. Your contribution helps provide essential resources to the people experiencing homelessness. As you can image, there are many expenses associated with providing essential and supportive services to approximately 120 people every Wednesday, Your contribution is not just a charitable donation, but is also a godsend that helps us sustain our weekly outreach program. Without people like you, we would not be able to reach our goals.
Thank you once again for your support!!
Alexandria House, a transitional housing program for women and children, has been blessed with support from Shelter Partnership for many years. The donations and support we receive from them makes our work possible. From the ordinary donations of paper towels, toilet paper, shampoo and conditioner which allows us to maintain our day-to-day operations. To the extraordinary gifts of brand-new clothes, baby toys and accessories, high-chairs and strollers that we get to give to our community to make their lives just a bit brighter and better.
Shelter Partners has worked with our organization for many years. The donations they collect and share with us are so helpful to our clients. By sharing these donations, our clients are able to continue to be supported and move forward providing for their families in a positive way. We feel very blessed to be a partnering with them and appreciate this organization so much.
Shelter Partnership allows us access to various odds and ends products that we are able to provide our clients.
St. Camlilus Spiritual Care Center in collaboration with Angel Interfaith Network and the Spiritual Care Department at LAC USC Medical Center(working with Social Workers, Volunteers Services, CARES and RN) we have been blessed with the Shelter Partnership. The cloths, primarily, are given to homeless whom we see on a daily basis who have such basic needs. Chaplains are often the person patients trust in a culture that they often live in distrust and fear. Embarrassed mothers whose medical needs are front and center but their daily needs are with cloths, food and shelter. Our joint effort changes peoples lives and given them peace of mind, heart, body and family. Thank you Shelter Partnership. Fr Chris Ponnet, Pastor St Camillus/AIN/ LAC USC chaplain
Thank you Shelter Partnership, Inc for helping our WHW job seekers prepare for their new employment opportunities with clothing, accessories and essential items. We value our collaborative approach to serving our community.
On behalf of CHIRP/LA, we would like to thank Shelter Partnership Program, for their gracious donation. The items that were donated were extremely useful for our homeless clients and for those who are in the process of moving into permanent housing. I would highly recommend other non-profits agencies that provide similar services to clients to join this service.
season after season Shelter Partnership is there for the Bad Weather Shelter in Pasadena .
we are able to hand out shoes sox and dry clothing on a nightly bases Thanks to the work of Shelter Partnership.
Shelter Partnership is one of our most important strategic non-profit partners! Each quarter we receive beautiful donations of new clothing and other essentials for our clients -- from infant needs to men's and women's clothing and shoes. Our clients, children from the foster care system in the greater Los Angeles area, put these items to immediate use. Shelter Partnership has helped us raise the bar for the service that we provide and we can't recommend them highly enough!
Foster Children's Resource Center
The Shelter Partnership has been a terrific community partner, and has provided us with vital donations of new clothing, shoes, hygiene products, books and toys. We are thrilled to receive donations on a quarterly basis, and as a result, we have been able to provide our clients with a wide array of items from which to choose. Our clients are in the local foster care system, and are often sent to foster care with only the clothes on their backs. The Shelter Partnership has made a big difference in the lives of the children that we serve!
Foster Children's Resource Center
I work in a school with a high homeless population. Shelter Partnership provides so many resources to my school that it makes coming to school an easier experience for my students. Being able to provide a small item like soap to clothing to my students makes the biggest difference. This is all possible thanks to the work Shelter Partnership does. Plus, their staff is great to work with and support you through the entire process.
Shelter partnership Inc has been supporting our organization for over 5 years. The staff is amazing, Caring and respectful. The women in our facilities are grateful for the donations we receive. We are a nonprofit organization that depend on donations and supporters like you. When we receiver that email from Mrs. Rhonda, I can honestly say ”Our hearts skips a beat” we know at that moment we will be able to supply our residents with items that they need.
We thank you.r service
Students soldiers justice and Memorial Foundation.
Shelter Partnership has stepped up to help our organization, Santa Claus, Inc., on more than one occasion, providing shoes and socks for thousands upon thousands of underprivileged children. They are higly professional, great to work with, and a true blessing for the children. We look forward to working with them in the future for the good of our local communities.
We have been working with Shelter Partnership for quite some time now and I have seen so much joy come from the recipients of the items we receive. We serve homeless, and those living with mental illness and addiction struggles. Rhonda Villanueva has been instrumental in the process! There are so many families out there that have never had this kind of support and the quality of clothing in their lives. We love everything about Shelter Partnership and we always look forward to sharing the many joys they bring our community and the ones that have struggled for so long.

On behalf of Hope in a Suitcase, I want to take a minute (though you deserve more than that) to THANK YOU and SHELTER PARTNERSHIP for the items you sent Hope in a Suitcase & The Emporium's way in late July!
From our new headquarters at The Emporium: Foster Resource & Literacy Center, Hope in a Suitcase and our Emporium Partners provide new clothing and essentials to Los Angeles children during their most vulnerable times: As they are first entering foster care; when the suddenly move from home to home; and when as they age out of the system. Many of the children we serve have little but the clothing on their backs or a few items which they carry in a plastic garbage bag.
We serve 3,500+ foster youth eacy year, and we simply could NOT function without the amazing support of Shelter Partnership, and the shoes, clothing, bags and other items they provide. They efficient and sensitive to our needs and, more importantly, the needs of the youth we serve, who are struggling to fit in to new communities and new school situations.
Rhonda Villanueva (our primany contact point) clearly understands and cares about the population we serve and their needs - both tangible and emotional, and also just makes it possible for our lean organization to function by making sure we get what we request, when we need it - never too much or too little for the children we are anticipating.
Recently, our volunteer led non-profit was forced to move. We are really up and running full swing now, thanks in large part to Shelter Partnership's help in "stocking the shop", where children in foster care are invited to come choose for themselves the clothing and literacy material they want and need, entirely free of charge. The clothing, shoes, socks hats and hygiene bags you sent have been a big hit.
This past Sunday alone, Hope in a Suitcase served 129 foster children, and they were so overjoyed to be able to choose from great items and start the new school year off with confidence.
I know the older TAY (transition aged youth") Emporium shoppers are loving the "wear to work" items and dresses as well. Having the right items to wear to an interview or a new job can help make the difference between getting on their feet, or living in a car for some of these youth.
A couple memories from a recent event: A seven year old girl who walked in feeling very nervous, and an hour later was dancing around in a pair of sparkly vans shoes. A middle school aged boy who wanted to play sports at his new school, and was over the moon when he found a pair of Nikes that would make him "jump higher"
One thank you note from a 15 year old girl I've transcribed below:
"I would like to thank you first off for one the experience. For all the kids out here with nothing, you help show that there are brighter days. I am so grateful that words are not enough to explain. My auntie has tried time & time again to find me clothes and shoes I'll like, or more importantly fit. & today I was able to walk out of here with everything I needed & more. The volunteers are very kind & patient. They made me feel at ease. Honestly, that's all one can really hope for and you at Hope in a Suitcase & Shelter Partnership made that possible for me today! I hope this letter of thanks was able to show at least a sliver of my gratitude! Thank you, Andrea"
THANK YOU!!!! WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR RHONDA, SHELTER PARTERSHIP, AND THE WONDERFUL COMPANIES THAT DONATE ITEMS !
Ever since Shelter Partnership has come alongside our non-profit to help families, the whole atmosphere has changed. We are able to help so many families and no longer have to turn them away. The order and pick up process is smooth and easy. Families are blessed with basic needs items and even some things to enjoy. We are so grateful for Shelter Partnership Inc.
Shelter Partnership's ability to provide a large variety of items for our clients goes a long way in offering relief for our families that they may have difficulty purchasing. The process of asking for materials is very simple and the window to pick up items allows for you to not feel rushed or that you need to rearrange your schedule to pick up the items once ready. There team of professionals at the warehouse are very friendly and are on top of making sure you are in and out as quick as possible. Thank you for everything!
Shelter partnership has provided my organization the wherewithal to positively impact literally thousands of lives. Clothing, personal hygiene, children’s items all go out in concentric circles creating comfort, a sense of safety and well-being to community members most in need,
I worked with Ruth Schwartz and Shelter Partnership for over 11 years while I was the Executive Director/CEO of Harbor Interfaith Services which provides services to homeless and low-income families and individuals. We found Ruth’s and Shelter Partnership’s guidance, friendship, and services invaluable. Definitely the highest recommendation!!
Shelter Partnership has donated thousands of dollars of goods to Independent Living Center of Southern CA. We appreciate their commitment to the community at large. It is because of Shelter Partnership that we are able to continuously provide a variety of donations to our clients. Thank you for all you do!
I am connected to some of the supervisors at Shelter Partnership, and while I was in high school they assisted me with my required service hours. My experience thus far has been wonderful! The other volunteers are helpful and kind, and the management team is always welcoming. I also appreciate Shelter Partnership's objective: to help the homeless with unused products from companies around Los Angeles. While working at their warehouse, I am constantly reminded of the importance of the duties I do, and it makes the volunteering experience even more fulfilling. If you are interested in Shelter Partnership, I highly recommend volunteering for them! It is probably the best nonprofit organization I know to this day.
Shelter Partnership has been consistently donating over $30,000 worth of new goods to the agency I work for, Optimist Youth Homes & Family Services, for over 10 years. We provide programs and services to at-risk youth and families, including children in the foster care and the probation systems, and their donations help us reduce our bottom line by providing items our clients need. Additionally, everything they donate is popular with our clients and greatly appreciated by them. We are so grateful for Shelter Partnership's generous support!
Optimist Youth Homes & Family Services is a non-profit organization in Los Angeles dedicated to helping at-risk youth and their families. Shelter Partnership has been an incredible community partner to us for several years and we always look forward to their donations. We've received anything from basic household supplies, to personal hygiene products, to furniture, to clothing, to gifts for our foster youth, to blankets, and the list goes on and on. They've even responded to a few special requests we've had for families who were recently homeless and needed basic essentials in their new home (mattresses, sheets, etc). We nominated them for an AFP (Association of Fundraising Professionals) award a couple years ago and they were the deserving winner. They are a truly remarkable organization and we're so grateful for their support.
U.S.VETS provides daily housing and services for over 800 homeless and at-risk veterans. Shelter Partnership has helped our staff to care for veterans who have been living under bridges, in encampments and abandoned buildings to come in off the street and to have beautiful new clean clothing to wear and personal hygiene that immediately restores their dignity.
Shelter Partnership has helped us to provide toys for the children and veteran families
- provide therapy for those suffering with trauma through arts and crafts provided by Shelter Partnership
-provide soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, toiletries, shoes and a restoration of dignity with these products to thousands of homeless and at-risk individuals through the generosity of Shelter Partnership
Shelter Partnership has helped us to give hope to our Nation's veterans and their families with their generous and quality donations. Shelter Partnership has helped our agency and our country to say "thank you for your service!"
For over 10 years Shelter Partnership has been an amazing partnership for our organization. Through their generous donations, our organization has been able to serve thousands of homeless youth and families. Providing them with clothing, hygiene products, and basic essentials to survive that otherwise, they would be without. Thousands of babies have been able to receive diapers due to the donations from Shelter Partnership, allowing their parents to be able to pay rent or purchase food that month and not having to make the tough choice between the two.
they help use 4 times a year with donations that we hand out to the public in Whittier. the faces of the people when we hand them toys or clothes for their kids is priceless.
Shelter partnerships are the best. Without their generous help the participants at out shelter with go without many valuable items such as but not limited to clothing, shoes, hygiene products and much more. We can not thank Shelter partnerships enough for everything that they provide our participants and are very blessed to have such and amazing organization providing us with these great resources.
The impact that Shelter Partnership Inc. has across Los Angeles County is immense, reaching more people than you could ever imagine. Their resource bank and warehouse provides items that our neighbors experiencing homelessness might need to help them survive, stabilize and thrive. They do this on a massive scale with their partnerships with local nonprofits directly serving individuals and families - making it easier for other nonprofit organizations to serve their clients. Aside from the resource bank, Shelter Partnership's staff are experts who dedicate themselves to state and local policy and alignment. We're all so lucky to have Shelter Partnership in LA County!
Diapers are a huge need in our community, but due to their high cost, we always struggle to get enough donated. Shelter Partnership has been a tremendous blessing by providing us with an assorted variety of diapers quarterly - along with many other donations we need - to continue providing for the thousands of individuals and families served by our organization on a yearly basis. We are truly grateful for Shelter Partnership's support over the years!

Shelter Partnership Inc. has been there for our agency for many years, providing much needed supplies to our most vulnerable clients. We would have no other way to obtain such essential necessities imperative to their well-being. They are always courteous, professional, and reliable. We are very thankful for their hard work and dedication to our community. The ordering process is easy and the program manager has been outstanding in her role.
Aviva Family and Children's Services has been benefiting from Shelter Partnership's important work for over 20 years. Most of our families are experiencing significant challenges and not having the basics only adds to their stress. The clothing, hygiene, baby items, and household items Shelter Partnership provides for our families eases their burdens.
Shelterparentership has also helped us to bring holiday smiles to hundreds of children Aviva services by offering toys. Every child wants the excitement of opening a present and Shelter Partnership makes that happen too.
We would be lost without Shelter Partnership's valuable resources!
Shelter Partnership has been of great help to us. Their goods help us to help a lot of families who have been homeless get back on their feet. Also at the holidays their gifts always bring a smile to the hundreds of children we serve. Without their commitment to the community, many children and families would be suffering even more. Shelter Partnership is important and deserves all the support it gets.
Our agency (West Hollywood Community Housing Corp.) is able to help our residents on fixed incomes with the donated items from Shelter Partnership. Very often we receive feedback from the residents expressing their gratitude for the items we are able to distribute to them. What is especially uplifting is the look on the children's faces when they receive toys and clothing. Priceless.
Shelter Partnership has been an immense blessing for the East San Gabriel Valley Coalition for the Homeless. Our agency receives many items that are extremely useful for our homeless clients who visit the Emergency Assistance Center, those individuals who stay at our cold weather shelter, and those families who are in our Bridge Program. Items received include: hygiene items, clothing, shoes, toys for children, diapers, baby items, and much more. Thank you Shelter Partnership Inc.
The East San Gabriel Valley Coalition for the Homeless receives donations from Shelter Partners throughout the year. Every donation is an immense gift for those homeless individuals and families; from clothing, to household item given to families who are able to go into their own housing, to toys for homeless children. Every donation from Shelter Partners is a real blessing and a sense of hope to our homeless population.
I have been working with Shelter Partnership for almost 10 years. The provide donations for the participants we serve at LA Family Housing. The ordering system is very easy and they provide you with many pick-up options. They have much needed blankets, baby items, clothing and hygiene supplies that help our participants stay warm, feel fresh and clean, go on job interviews and save money to transition in to permanent housing. Thanks for all you do Rhonda and everyone at Shelter Partnership!
This is an amazing organization! they provide us with items that our homeless population needs on a daily basis. They are so easy to work with and the staff is wonderful!
The Shelter Partnership donates an amazing amount of items to us every year. This includes toys, clothes, shoes, cleaning supplies, paper goods, laundry soap, etc. We have even received cribs, bassinets and other much needed baby supplies. We provide supportive services and housing for victims of domestic violence and these donations save us thousands of dollars.
The Partnership is fantastic!!!
They are an amazing help to our organization and help us cater the needs of all of our clients with quality items!
Shelter Partnership is a phenomenal organization that partners with organizations that assist the homeless in the greater Los Angeles area. It plays a unique "middle man" role, collecting donations of needed materials, such as diapers and mattresses, from donors, and then providing them directly to shelters. This is a much needed service that is done in an efficient and effective manner.
This non-profit not only serves a critical needs for goods procurement and distribution for homeless shelters and permenant housing projects all across Los Angeles but also extensively studies and advocates for housing policies that make sense for cities. Shelter Partnership is an amazing concept and run by an incredible Board and CEO.
Glendale Community Center of Catholic Charities of Los Angeles is a beneficiary of Shelter Partnership Inc. Shelter Partnership helps us offer new items to our clients. We receive new cloths, toys, hygiene kits, shoes and many other needed items that help us serve our clients better. Thank you and God bless Shelter Partnership Inc !
I first learned about Shelter Partnership, as my company handled their commercial insurance needs. Since then, I have sent time volunteering at their warehouse, helping collect supplies at various mixers and networking events, and most recently became Vice Chair of their Associate Board for young professionals. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, and the organization is a premier leader in the homelessness sector. I am very happy to be a contributor to and friend of The Shelter Partnership.
this non profit plays an integral role in homeless services and housing in los angeles county. they could do better by being better known!
Shelter partnership helps non-profits by getting essential items to the people that need it most. I look forward to partnering with them to help our seniors
They are the best all-around in dealing with the immediate needs of the homeless as well as the policy that impacts this population. They do it from all fronts with a small staff.
Shelter Partnership is working at the ground level to actually solve the homeless problem of Los Angeles. I consider my time very valuable, and I have never regretted a single minute spent in the service of Shelter Partnership (and I have spent many hours volunteering for their cause). The Mark Taper Foundation Resource Bank is an amazing operation, that helps thousands of homeless people every year. I have volunteered multiple times to help sort some of the $9 million in new goods they received last year. I will continue to participate with Shelter Partnership as long as I live in LA, and will continue to donate long after I've moved away, because I know for a fact that it is money well used.
Our firm identified Shelter Partnership as a volunteer opportunity for the office. From a volunteer standpoint - it was incredibly easy and efficient. We showed up and signed in - and got to work pretty quickly. Everyone was friendly and professional. They even gave a tour of the facility - which was pretty cool to see the size and scale of their donations.
My son and I went out to the warehouse to volunteer at Shelter Partners last weekend and had a great experience. Everyone was very nice and the atmosphere was relaxed. We felt comfortable and enjoyed the task. One of the leaders gave a warehouse tour which was both informative and interesting! I have never been in such a huge warehouse and found it very heartwarming that there is a company doing what Shelter Partners does. It is a very rare agency and we will continue to come out and lend a hand whenever we can! Knowing that this directly helps so many people is very rewarding!
Shelter Partnership helps Children of the Night with supplies, clothing and necessities required to provide a home for America's children victimized by prostitution right here in America. Because of Shelter Partnership we are able to fund the most critical and challenging fundraising area of all - trained child care staff. In fact, in 2015 we spent 90% of our donations on the care and supervision of children. Thank you Shelter Partnership for providing the basics required to operate a home.
What a great idea Shelter Partnership. We used to spend contributions on storage of donated items and the sorting of these items - We would distribute goods we didn't need to other organizations but the cost in time and storage was a burden.
Now with Shelter Partnership - they take the hard labor of sorting, cataloging and distributing off the backs of agencies that need to spend their time on their mission.
There job is not easy but it is sincerely appreciated by Children of the Night who depends on inkind contributions in an organized cost effective means of collection.
Hurray for Shelter Partnership, Inc.
I have donated to many charities over the course of my life, but Shelter Partnership is the first I ever felt compelled to get involved with deeper. Shelter Partnership is a charity in which you can actually see how donations are being used and distributed. The Mark Taper Resource Center is an actual location at which you can volunteer, to see your generous donations put to use. The relationships that Shelter Partnership fosters are of the highest caliber, and all further their cause of ending homelessness in LA. One of the most enlightening tours I've even been on was the walk-through of Skid Row, in which you can see first hand the needs of the homeless community, and in what ways the initiatives of Shelter Partnership serves those needs. Shelter Partnership's relationship with Officer Deon Joseph makes this tour possible. This really demonstrates that Shelter Partnership is working at the ground level to solve this problem. I will continue to participate with Shelter Partnership as long as I live in LA, and even after moving, I will continue to donate, because I know for a fact that it is money well used.
PATH's 15-family interim housing facility in Mid-City is extremely thankful for Shelter Partnership's donations. Our case managers accept a wide variety of donations year-round, including diapers, toys, laundry detergent, tissue paper, and bleach - all of which save PATH hundreds each quarter in operational costs.
On behalf of PATH and the homeless families we serve, we thank Shelter Partnership for their ongoing support! It's with community partners like you that we can truly make a difference.
