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.
Shelter Partnership is a smart and strategic organization. It gets all kinds of goods to nonprofits in need. Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services relies on it for its homeless clients in outpatient and residential care. Thanks to Shelter Partnership, we get help with everything from bleach to clean our residences to toys for our littlest clients at Christmas to everyday and interview clothes. The Shelter staff is wonderfully organized and makes sure recipients of its items know when and how to order them. Didi Hirsch appreciates all they do for our agency and our clients.
I am the Program Director for Ella's Foundation, a Los Angeles based non profit that provides housing for homeless adult males. We have been recipients of Shelter Partnership since June 2015. Since becoming recipients, we have received an abundance of items including clothing, hygiene and other basic need items that allow us to provide a greater service to the population we serve. We are grateful for this organization and even more appreciative of their service to help those committed to helping others.
I love the work they do. I cannot sum into man made words the angelic role this organization plays in the lives of the homeless population we serve! I am so happy to be able to express the appreciation I have for them!!!
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
Our small, grassroots 100% volunteer non-profit, Hope in a Suitcase, which provides suitcases, duffelbags, essentials and comfort items to Los Angeles youth entering foster care, recently became a recipient organization of Shelter Partnership, and we cannot say enough positive things. Shelter Partnership's support astronomically increases the amount of good we can do for our community! Shelter Partnership lifts a huge burden in terms of fundraising and outreach to companies with merchandise to donate by consolidating it in one spot. Hope in a Suitcase can now spend more energy doing what we love to do, which is distributing special gifts of love and comfort to children who have recently been separated from their families (often with only the clothes on their backs and/or carrying their few personal belongings in garbage bags), to make their transition into foster care a little easier and more dignified. We will be able to serve many times more children with Shelter Partnership's support.
Shelter Partnership is an amazing operation. They have stringent requirements about which agencies they provide items to, and clear restrictions about what can be done with the items received, which ensures that the items provided will be put to good use for the benefit of the populations Shelter Partnership and their donors strive to help. Working with Shelter Partnership is a joy! Their systems are very efficient and streamlined - Even our first time working working with them, everything from choosing items, to scheduling picking and loading it onto our truck was a very clear and smooth process. Rhonda Villanueva was so responsive and helpful with our questions, and managed to find all of the items on our wishlist. Considering we hadn't seen the items prior to pick-up, we were delighted that all of them turned out to be quality items which were perfect for our needs that will make the children we serve feel valued and comfortable during an extremely vulnerable time! Pick-up arrangements were simple - we had allocated an hour of time to get in and out, and it ended up taking 15-20 minutes because everything was ready to go the minute they said it would be. Jerry at the loading dock was very patient with us in explaining what to do, clearly loves the important work he does, and enjoys assisting others who strive to help those in need.
Shelter Partnership is a game changer! Hope in a Suitcase can accomplish so much more, and provide so many more children between homes with essentials and comfort due to Shelter Partnership's wonderful support. Thank you, Shelter Partnership, for serving our most vulnerable populations and for making the world a better place!
