WE'RE HERE FOR YOU

Handle With Care is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting the homeless community throughout Los Angeles, with a focus on West Hollywood and Hollywood. We provide care packages to homeless individuals, filled with foods, personal care items, and resource guides along with a friendly hello and conversation.

OUR MISSION

The mission of handle with care is to help homeless individuals on the streets while acting as a bridge between the streets and the opportunities available to help people transition off the streets.

In a perfect world, there wouldn’t be a single homeless person. However, the reality of life is that there are homeless people that need our help. To fulfill our mission, we pack and distribute care packages that help people with their daily needs while they are without housing. Handle With Care also advocates for public policies that support homeless individuals and promote affordable housing.

FIVE FRIENDS – SEEING A NEED IN THE COMMUNITY.

In January 2018, five friends gathered over a meal and discussed the evident issue of homeless people living in and near our community. We decided to be the change instead of just talking about an issue. We gathered funds, organized friends, and hit the streets in February 2018 for our first distribution of care packages. Since then, we have engaged dozens of volunteers, distributed hundreds of care packages, organized fundraisers and grant applications, and made numerous connections with people living on the streets.
