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 to complete a basic orientation. Doors open at 7:30am and clients may not line up before 7:00am. After completing orientation, individuals can access basic services such as meals at Bread and Roses Café, while working on long-term housing solutions.

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.
