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.

The Alcoholism Center for Women greatly appreciates the continuous donations we receive from Shelter Partnership. Many of our clients come to us with only the clothes on their back. They appreciate the clothes, shoes and personal hygiene products immensely. It warms our hearts to see how happy they are to receive new clean clothes. The cleaning items help us keep our facilities neat and clean. We are so gratefully to all the help Shelter Partnership is providing us.

Shelter Partnership has been a major supporter of our programs and services for years to assist homeless and very low-income individuals in the Skid Row area. Their contributions of goods and services far exceeds anything we would have wished for. To have such a partner makes our challenge to address homelessness so much more hopeful in the work we do each day. Thank you for ALL of your assistance over the years.

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.

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!

Sincerely,

William Membreno

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!
