It’s never to early to start start making a difference in people’s lives. LA Family Housing offers a variety of ways for youth to volunteer at LA Family Housing, whether at a one-time service event or on an ongoing basis.

To sign up, please follow our easy, three-step process:

step 1: check out our Youth Volunteer Opportunities


Assist LAFH kitchen staff in preparing and serving meals to our 250 Bridge Housing participants.

  • We need volunteers 7 days a week for:

    • Breakfast: 6:30 - 9:00 am

    • Lunch: 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

    • Dinner: 4:30 - 7:00 pm

  • Must be 16 years or older


Learn about homelessness in L.A. and then lead your own project to help LAFH provide services to those experiencing homelessness. This is an excellent way to fulfill service hours!

  • YAC meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month

  • Must be 14 years or older and able to commit to monthly meetings as well as independent projects.


Package Welcome Home Baskets or Hygiene Kits for LAFH families and single adults.

  • This can be done in association with a donation drive or scheduled as needed.

  • Every other Friday: 2:00 - 4:00 pm

  • Everyone must be 10 years or older. Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.


Support LAFH participants by recruiting friends, family, or coworkers to donate items from our wish list.

  • This can be done at a time and place that works best for your group. We will schedule a drop off or pick up time.

  • Any age is welcome!
