About Us

Restoring dignity and empowering the lives of people experiencing homelessness

Founded in 2016 by Caitlin Adler, Project Ropa began by taking to the streets of Los Angeles each week in tandem with Lava Mae to deliver clothing and showers to people experiencing homelessness.

Since then, we have expanded our programs to include a social enterprise that provides employment opportunities for previously incarcerated individuals and people transitioning out of homelessness.

We also have a recycling program where we sort and distribute surplus donations of new and gently used men's and women's clothing, shoes and accessories free of charge to our network of local nonprofit partners who work directly with low-income and homeless individuals in Los Angeles County.

Mobile Street Service

We restore dignity and rekindle optimism to people experiencing homelessness by taking to the streets of Los Angeles each week to deliver clean clothing and access to other hygiene services.

Social Enterprise

We believe in providing second chances for people who want the opportunity. We employ previously incarcerated individuals and people transitioning out of homelessness to work with our mobile street service and recycling program. We also provide living wage salaries and access to ancillary services to help break the cycle of homelessness.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

Our eco-friendly recycling program helps reduce the clothing waste that is going into landfills. All of the donation items we receive are either given out to people experiencing homelessness during our mobile street service, redistributed to a partner organization or recycled.
