VOLUNTEER AND DONATION OPPORTUNITIES
Mayor's Fund for the Homeless - The Mayor's Fund for the Homeless is allocated regularly to programs in Long Beach that address significant service delivery gaps in our Continuum of Care. Donations to this fund have supported a variety of critical services, including relocation assistance, job training and placement services, winter shelter programs, food and transportation assistance and move-in assistance. Your contribution to the Mayor's Fund will make a real difference and give individuals and families in our community the Support they need to break the cycle of homelessness.
Volunteer Meal Programs - Community members can provide support in the form of money, food or volunteer time to organizations already providing food to the homeless population.
Give a Hand Up - General suggestions on how to assist individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
Needed Donation Items:
Hygiene Kits - helps us satisfy some of the basic needs of those experiencing homelessness.
Welcome Home Kits - When individuals who have experienced long-term homelessness finally move into their home, they typically have ZERO of the items needed and it can be very overwhelming! We want to provide kits to help ease their transition into housing and provide them with basic items that every home needs.
Please drop off donated items at the Multi-Services Center, 1301 W. 12th Street, Long Beach.
