If You Need Help

If this is a medical emergency, please call 911 immediately.

You can request outreach for yourself or for others through the Los Angeles Homeless Outreach Portal (LA-HOP) at www.la-hop.org.

If you are a currently homeless individual on the Westside:
Please visit St. Joseph Center’s Homeless Service Center located at 404 Lincoln Blvd, Venice CA 90291. Drop-in services are available 7:30am to noon, Monday through Friday (please do not line up before 7:00am). From 1:00pm to 4:00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday services are available by appointment only (on Wednesday afternoon we are closed for client services).

The quickest way to schedule an orientation appointment is to visit during drop-in hours. You may also call 310-399-6878 to leave a voicemail message requesting an appointment. After completing orientation, individuals can access basic services such as showers and meals at Bread and Roses Café.

Outside of business hours, resources and information can be requested by calling 211.

If you are a currently (or at-risk) homeless family with children:
Please call 211 as your first step to getting help. 211 will refer you to your nearest resource.

If you are currently housed and need food assistance:
Please contact our Food Pantry at 310-396-6468 ext. 313 to make an initial appointment. After you register, you will be able to come to the Food Pantry on a weekly basis and have access to a range of other St. Joseph Center programs.
