My Friend's House Foundation is GROWING!  Join us in our movement with a donation today to help get us started! We need your contributions to help us build-out our new location and expand our outreach services to help even more people in our community  experiencing homelessness, hunger, and lack of basic needs - How Exciting! Our vision is to empower the lives of others by giving them the self-esteem and confidence they need to live healthy productive lives that lead to self-sufficiency. We currently serve over 250 people each week with NO government funding or grants.  Our growth thrives solely through your support, so every dollar counts!

Our new location
will be home to a boutique that will open the door for us to create opportunities for employment and a shopping experience for those in the Skid Row community. We will also have administrative and case management offices, a computer area, learning center, library, grooming area, seminar/workshop space, and more that will provide community enrichment and self-sufficiency!

“PEOPLE, EVEN MORE THAN THINGS, HAVE TO BE RESTORED, RENEWED, REVIVED, RECLAIMED AND REDEEMED; NEVER COUNT ANYONE OUT.”

The Outreach Center is over halfway complete and we could not have done it without the generous donations of people like you! We still have more to complete before we can officially open our doors. We are still in need of many things, so please consider making a tax-deductible donation of ANY amount today. We are so close! We still need your support so we can provide more services for the community. We desire to provide even more! Thank you in advance!

Dear My Friends House LA supporters,

I can't begin to express what your donations mean to me and My Friends House LA! The financial support is most definitely helpful and will go to extremely good use. But more than the monetary value, I so greatly appreciate the thought behind the gift. Together, we can do more!

We are about 1/3 of the way through completion of our NEW OUTREACH CENTER (for homeless, transitioning, and low-income individuals and families). It's not too late to DONATE to helping us not only "feed a man a fish, but also teach him how to fish." www.GoFundMe.com/LIVE2GIVE

Sincerely,
