We can’t end homelessness but we do our part to keep it at bay.
Families receive food, clothing, and other supportive services.
- We give out fresh groceries to over 290 families every week
- We provide clothing from our Thrift Shop
- We offer a permanent mailing address
- We help with obtaining social services
We keep families who are on the edge of trouble from falling into the downward spiral that is life on the streets. With the help of the community we give aid and comfort to families that are struggling so they can stay safe and secure in their homes.
Our employees and volunteers give service and get smiles and gratitude in return. Families receive groceries each week – thanks to our generous sponsors we usually collect plenty of food each week – and we never run short of clients in need of help. Please join us and become a part of this mission serving the South Bay Los Angeles.
Jenny was a practicing nurse when she was given a diagnosis of schizophrenia. Because of the extreme changes in her behavior and emotional state, Jenny's Mom told her she needed to take her medications or move out. Jenny left her mother and ended up living on the street. She often stopped by the House of Yahweh for food, clothing and conversation. After several months on the street one night she was brutally beaten and taken to a hospital. When she left the hospital she walked nine miles to the House of Yahweh, because she said, "Donna will help me". Jenny was given food, clean socks and shoes. Jenny reconnected with her Mom and agreed to move into a special group home where her needs were addressed. She began taking her medications and began a graduate program at Loyola Marymount University. Jenny recently graduated with a degree in Mental Health. Congratulations Jenny on all you've accomplished!
