Catholic Charities of Los Angeles, Inc.

Mental illness, substance abuse, unemployment, low-income, a high cost of living, a sudden expense or loss of income and lack of family support can all contribute to homelessness. At programs in Long Beach, Covina and Los Angeles, Catholic Charities tackles the root causes of homelessness to transform the lives of men, women and children. Through our emergency shelter and bridge and crisis housing programs, homeless individuals are offered a safe haven and the tools needed to lead self-sufficient lives. By way of our homeless prevention programs, which typically include case management and financial assistance, at-risk individuals and families are able to regain stability in their current housing. And through counseling, education, job training and support, those who were once homeless prepare for independent futures.
