We believe everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect
Los Angeles County has the 2nd highest population of people experiencing homelessness in the nation with nearly 59,000 individuals, 75% of whom are unsheltered.
How you look affects how you feel about yourself and how others treat you. No one should have to wear dirty clothing. We provide access to clean clothes and hygiene services to give people experiencing homelessness a fresh start. We take the time to get to know each person we serve and help them select clothing that is the right fit and style.
We know that providing clean clothing and access to showers won't solve homelessness, but without these hygiene essentials people experiencing homelessness have little hope for an opportunity to get off the streets and transform their lives.
We believe in second chances for people who have the desire to turn their lives around. Our vision is to help break the cycle of homelessness while protecting our environment by restoring dignity and creating living wage job opportunities for people with barriers to employment.

"I just really have one wish. I'd like my daughter to come up to me and we can go shopping. I could pick out an outfit for her."
"My son didn't have a pair of shoes and he was able to acquire a pair from you guys. I was very happy about that."
