Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Homeless & Housing, Homeless Centers, Human Services

Mission: Shelter Partnership, Inc. is a nonprofit organization collaboratively solving homelessness in Los Angeles County through policy analysis, program design, resource development, and advocacy in support of agencies and local governments that serve the homeless.

Results: Thanks to your generous support during fiscal year 2017/2018, Shelter Partnership was able to accomplish many wonderful things! • Through our award-winning S. Mark Taper Foundation Shelter Resource Bank, Shelter Partnership distributed $9.5 million in new goods to 256 agencies and projects throughout Los Angeles County. We also secured about $9 million in new goods, including infant and children’s furniture, diapers and toys, clothing for all members of the family, shoes and socks, personal care products, paper products, cleaning supplies, and more. • Over the last five years, Shelter Partnership has collaborated with multiple public agencies to help develop and implement the Coordinated Entry System for Families. Launched in 2012, and led by community-based organizations, the system quickly connects homeless and at-risk families to appropriate housing and services. This past year, the system assessed and enrolled more than 3,000 families of which over 1,100 have already secured permanent housing. • We administered the SHORE program on behalf of 18 community-based agencies that assisted almost 7,000 individuals with over $500,000 in transportation assistance, for employment-related, education, and housing purposes. • With many other community-based organizations and business leaders, we successfully advocated for the City of Los Angeles to place a $1.2 billion housing bond issue on the November 2016 ballot to create 10,000 units of permanent supportive housing in the next 10 years for chronically homeless people. It was overwhelmingly approved by the voters.

Target demographics: Agencies serving the homeless and very poor throughout Los Angeles County.

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!
Regards,
Sayed Hamidi
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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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!

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.
