Family-friendly volunteer opportunity!
Join SALA volunteers at this amazing drop-in center, where we'll get to helping on one of the many projects that need doing: repainting walls, re-organizing their clothing supplies, restocking the SPY toiletry closet, etc. Hundreds of youth come through their doors each week looking for basic necessities and support.
We've worked with them on a number of item drives and the youth homelessness count, and are joining the SPY team as regular lunch sponsors. Our last Help Day was a lot of fun and super effective. They're so happy to have us back!
Please RSVP to let us know if you can join us.

Safe Place for Youth was founded in 2011 by a group of dedicated volunteers and Founder/Executive Director Alison Hurst, offering hot food, clothing and socks to homeless youth in Venice Beach from their cars. They prioritize low barriers for entry, harm-reduction, a trauma-informed approach, and the provision of a safe, supportive environment, offering a continuum of care that includes street outreach, drop-in services, case management, health and wellness, and education and employment programs.
