The Center for the Pacific Asian Family is a non profit organization serving Asian Pacific Islanders (API) who are survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault in the LA county area. Our survivors have a very high need for personal effects, supplies, clothing, household goods, etc. Our survivors are considered homeless, as they have been forced to flee out of concern for their safety, and sometimes their children's safety.
Our survivors sometimes come to us with nothing except the clothes on their backs. With the help of Shelter Partnership, we are able to collect supplies like shampoo, toilet paper, cleaning supplies for the shelter like bleach, dish soap, toys for the children, school supplies, shoes, hats, clothes, etc, many items that address the daily needs of our clients, but also offer the comforts of a home they no longer have.
Hillview is a public benefit non profit agency that has served the most severly mentally disabled adults in the San Fernando Valley since 1966. In addition to our outpatient population, close to 100 clients live in Hillview housing. Most of these clients receive funding from Social Security, SSI or General relief; others have no funding at all. Therefore donations from Shelter Partnership are are not only apppreciated, but also very necessary. Most of the items are distributed immediately, others are put away so that we can fill 100 holiday baskets. Clients enjoy the personal items, clothing, hats and miscellaneous gift items that you send our agency. Baskets that are left over are given to new residents when they move in. These Welcome Baskets along with many of your cleaning supplies help them establish their new household. Shelter Partnership saves our agency from buying certain items and allows us to purchase other important items for our clients. Thank you for the good work that you do for the less fortunate in our community.
Shelter Partnership is a superior organization that has stayed true to its mission and goals. The members of the organization are dedicated and knowledgeable, and do work that actually makes a difference in Los Angeles. When I have spent time and worked with employees from SP, they have been both passionate about their work and optimistic about possibilities.
1736 Family Crisis Center’s mission is to comprehensively help children (newborns through adolescents), women, men, and families through crisis circumstances, including domestic violence, abuse, homelessness, neglect, poverty, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder, distress, and to improve their prospects for long-term housing, safety, survival, financial stability and success.
1736 Family Crisis Center was founded in 1972, as a community outreach effort to shelter children who were sleeping on LA County’s South Bay beaches. In the course of this work, we began to receive many calls from battered women seeking help. 1736 FCC responded by opening an emergency domestic violence shelter in 1981. In 1984, we established the first transitional domestic violence shelter in LA County that offered a clinically-based program. For nine years, it remained the only one of its kind in the County.
Today, we operate four domestic violence shelters, an emergency youth shelter, an in-house Legal Services Department, a City of LA-funded Family Source Center to help poverty-stricken residents increase their income; a job development and placement program; five 24-hour crisis hotlines; and three outpatient Community Service Centers in LA County.
We operate all of our shelters in homes that are warm and comfortable. Shelter Partnership plays an important part in this by providing us with hygiene products, clothing, toys, games, and many items that our clients would not be able to quickly access because they were going through a crisis.
We serve 5000 clients through our direct services each year. On any given day, we serve about 165 clients in our shelters and thousands more through indirect services such as outreach, educational presentations, 24-hour crisis hotlines and governmental presentations. A blanket, a sweater, or a teddy bear, all provided by Shelter Partnership, help to make our clients feel at ease when times may otherwise be difficult.
The Independent Living Center of Southern California (ILCSC) serves the most vulnerable population of persons with disabilities, older adults, and veterans. They are in need of the basic necessities of life, and the items donated by Shelter Partnership throughout the years, make the difference for our clients. We are truly grateful to Shelter Partnership; and all of their staff, who provide excellent customer service.
Shelter Partnership is an organization with great heart, always there to figure out how to be helpful to organizations like ours (Housing Works) that work with the most vulnerable of the people in Los Angeles who are homeless. SP is a key voice for sustainable change in order to create a better community for everyone.
Through the St. Francis Center we provide programs and services for homeless and near homeless families in the community of DTLA. Shelter Partnership has been such a huge help throughout the year providing our guests with helpful non food items such as blankets, back packs, toys, kitchen items, diapers, clothes, etc. We are grateful for the help they have provided, Anita and the staff are awesome!
A Community of Friends’ mission is to end homelessness through the provision of quality permanent supportive housing for people with mental illness.
For over ten years, we have been fortunate enough to receive much needed donations from Shelter Partnership. The S. Mark Taper Foundation Shelter Resource Bank.
When a tenant moves into one of our buildings, they are often provided with a welcome home basket.
Most of the items in the basket, are items which have either have been donated by Shelter Partnership or private donors. Some of the items, may include, a shower curtain, tooth paste, tooth, brush, cleaning supplies, among many other day to day household items.
I would personally like to thank all of the wonderful staff at Shelter Partnership, which make it all possible. From the administrative staff to the great folks at the S. Mark Taper Foundation Shelter Resource Bank. Anita, Jerri, and the rest of the crew. Thank you!
Shelter Partnership in Los Angeles is great. Their services provided to small to med-range non profit organizations enhances our services provided to the clients we serve. Their dedication to move unwanted but usable items from the corporate world and out of land fills to the needed is unmeasurable. I hope Shelter Partnership can expand their ideas and mission across America. Thank you Shelter Partnership for securing resources that non-profits need and would otherwise have been dispose of on landfills.
Shelter Partnership is one of the great organizations of Los Angeles building a bridge between business and non-profits. Most small to mid-size non-profits struggle to solicit for much needed donations due to the time consuming efforts of providing for the needs of their clients. Shelter Partnership, in essence supplies the troops that are on the front line with much needed resources. THANK YOU!
At Alegria, we offer transitional housing for families in need as well as permanent housing, after school and community activities. Shelter Partnership helps us provide our clients with essentials as well as gifts and books for the children. This year, the experience is even better with managing the donations on line without loosing the personnal touch of communicating directly. We always look forward to the next donation.
We are a non-profit organization that provides transitional housing and permanent supportive housing to very low income individuals and families with disabilities. Thanks to Shelter Partnership we are able to offer our clients with essential items that they could otherwise not afford on their own and they are always very appreciative when they receive the donations.

Here at Union Rescue Mission we appreciate Shelter Partnership greatly. They have been a partner to us and the donations they provide us help us better serve our beloved guests. They are super efficient, organized, and ordering has become even simpler with their new system.
Shelter Partnership is an outstanding organzation with a HUGE list of clients. They are able to touch so many organizations that are doing wonderful work in our community and help transform lives.
We are a non-profit organization providing services to clients in need. Many are homeless and have multiple needs with minimal resources. Shelter Partnership has been an important part of how we are able to provide our clients with the many items they have given us through the years. The staff is helpful and picking up the goods has always been an easy experience as everthing is ready and waiting for us.
They are a wonderful organization!
We have programs that serve formerly homeless families. We provide them with the skills and training to become independent and self sufficient. Shelter Partnership generously gives us items to help the families feel loved and valued.
We get a lot of very practical items through Shelter Partnership -- bleach, soap, tissues, hygiene products. What makes our relationship special is when they give us the kinds of things we cannot afford to buy.
My favorite example is when we received wooden bread boxes for our families. What might seem like an insignificant counter item brought tears to more than one woman's eyes. As we help families rebuild their lives, Shelter Partnership helps us give hope for a better tomorrow.
The useful, the necessary, and the surprising--we've received them all fromShelter Partnership, quarterly, year after year. The blankets, the bleach, the soap, and similar items provide us and our shelter residents with items critical for maintaining a clean and safe facility. In that we receive these gifts at no cost means that we save dollars at the same time that we extend more service to more people. And then, on top of all else, there are the surprises. Most recently we requested three boxes of "T-shirts," and who knew what that might be. They arrived, we opened the boxes, and like butterflies out flew these startling colors and designs. In short order, everyone in the shelter was wearing a new t-shirt, and amazed that we were simply giving them away, a regular designer product. It's this combination of things that fills us with equal amounts of gratitude and delight.
Shelter Partnership has been a wonderful community partner to our non profit organization. Through their generosity, thousands of children and families have benefited by their donations. Our organization has always enjoyed working with their staff who are always helpful, gracious and a pleasure to work with. We look forward to growing our relationship with Shelter Partnership in the years to come.
The youth at Journey House are able to have basic hygiene because of Shelter Partnership. They are greatful to be connected to such a wonderful organization.
Shelter Partnership has been extremely helpful to our organization. Their staff and volunteers are helpful, courteous, and professional. Communication and information transfer is timely and direct.
