Looking for ways to help our homeless neighbors in Los Angeles?
Project Ropa is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that operates a free mobile hygiene service which brings clean clothes, shoes and access to showers directly to people experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles. These basic essentials are vital to the overall well-being of a person and can be the key to turning lives around.
Our social enterprise helps open the doors to employment and housing opportunities for people transitioning out of homelessness and for formerly incarcerated individuals.
Our retrofitted van – essentially a walk-in closet on wheels filled with new and gently used donated clothing, shoes and accessories -- travels throughout the city to serve homeless men, women and families where they are. In “recycling” donated goods from manufacturers and charitable groups, we also help to reduce the high volume of clothing that needlessly winds up in landfills.
We operate in conjunction with a network of local nonprofit partners -- including Chrysalis, Lava Mae, The Whole Child, The ReFresh Spot, A Place Called Home, Clothes the Deal, Shower of Hope and St. Joseph Center – that offer a range of employment, housing and hygiene services.
