58,000 people in Los Angeles are homeless. One-third are families and youth. They deserve a better future.
What We Do
Imagine LA ends the cycle of family homelessness and poverty by training and guiding teams of volunteer mentors paired with vulnerable families.
"Programs like Imagine LA that work to really end a person's cycle of homelessness and poverty aren't just a solution, they're a prevention."
— Chris Ko, Director of Homeless InitiativesUnited Way of Greater Los Angeles
Celebrating 10 Years
Our 10th birthday celebration and reunion is April 28th! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Imagine LA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to ending the cycle of family homelessness and chronic poverty via a supercharged blend of mentoring and social services.
We recruit teams of volunteer mentors who are professionally trained and guided to assist vulnerable families, ending their cycle of homelessness and poverty.
Families are thriving! All Imagine LA Families remain in housing; incomes are up 71%; kids are thriving in school and graduating; and all receive regular medical care and are building crucial wellness habits.
58,000 people in Los Angeles are homeless. One third are families and young adults. Please join us to help them realize a better future.
Thanks to all our generous donors, partners and volunteers, 2017 was a watershed year for Imagine LA. Read all about what you helped us accomplish in our annual report.
One of our long-term goals is to replicate our model far and wide. Two years in the making, Imagine Whittier does just that.
In October, we formally launched the program, which is a partnership of The Whole Child, Greenleaf Consortium of Churches, the Whittier Consortium on Homelessness, and Imagine LA.
Here's what a single week of community engagement can look like for our busy team at Imagine LA.
