Shelter Partnership’s Response to COVID-19

Shelter Partnership supports the most vulnerable members of our community: people who are homeless and those at-risk of homelessness. Unfortunately, many people living in poverty are aging, or struggle with chronic health conditions. These next few months may be incredibly difficult for many people.

With the uncertainty of the severity of COVID-19, our homeless neighbors need us now more than ever before. During this difficult time, we will be continuing and expanding our services. Here’s what we will be up to over the next few months:

  • We will continue operating the S. Mark Taper Foundation Shelter Resource Bank warehouse project. Our warehouse is actively taking in and distributing donations of nonperishable goods. We’re responding to the current crisis by providing essential supplies like emergency blankets, disinfectant bleach, soap, diapers, and socks to our network of community service agencies.
  • The S. Mark Taper Foundation Shelter Resource Bank is distributing emergency supplies to the new shelters and hotel/motel beds that the City and County of Los Angeles are setting up.
  • Advising L.A. City and County to enhance its services and programs for at-risk and homeless older adults.
  • Helping the State of California process funding to bring on more units of permanent supportive housing quickly.

If you’re able, please donate today. Your support will help us ramp up our response to the #coronavirus and be ready for whatever comes next. Visit our donation page or Text COVID2020 to 41-444.

You can also donate needed products to us. Immediate product donation needs include: masks, hand sanitizer, personal care products, gloves, toilet paper, liquid soap, gowns, facial tissue, and trash bags. Please contact Jennifer Marquez (Director of Product Donations) at jmarquez@shelterpartnership.org if you would like to make a donation of any of these items.
