LA Family Housing is beginning a new tradition and we're inviting everyone - staff, volunteers, donors, and board members - to get involved!
LAFH Week celebrates our collaborative efforts to end homelessness, and empowers the community to take action in support of our homeless neighbors.
From a town hall conversation, to volunteer "takeover" days, to a visit to the Skirball Cultural Center, each day offers a new opportunity to engage in meaningful and hands-on activities that will help you connect more deeply with the community through giving and service.
Join us! RSVP at the links below.
