Jovenes’ mission is to help homeless youth, ages 18-25, end their cycle of homelessness and become active and integrated members of our community. Located in Boyle Heights and serving communities throughout Southeast LA County, Jovenes works deeply with our youth focusing on not only their needs for housing, but also healthcare, education, employment and trauma recovery.

Lost Angels Children's Project

Lost Angels is a nonprofit organization committed to empowering distressed communities by actively creating opportunities to divert disadvantaged youth and young adults through innovative vocational training, creation of social enterprises and traditional outreach programs.

My Friend's Place

The mission of My Friend's Place is to assist and inspire homeless youth to build self-sufficient lives. From their early beginnings as a volunteer-based group serving meals from the trunks of cars to the dynamic resource center in operation today, My Friend's Place offers comprehensive services to nearly 1,400 youth experiencing homelessness between the ages of 12 and 25, and their children, each year, helping our homeless young people move toward wellness, stability and self-sufficiency. 

Seed House Project

Seed House Project (SHP) is a 501(c)(3) organization servicing transitional age youth (TAY) who are experiencing homelessness. The TAY community are young people aged 16 to 24 who are aging out of the foster care system or state custody, and experience added challenges developing into adulthood. SHP assists TAY communities experiencing homelessness by providing foundational support for three pillars of successful transition into adulthood: providing a home, supporting job skills training and placement, and creating personalized mentorships.
