Construction of a New 8 Family Domestic Violence Shelter Begins

We are thrilled to announce that construction has begun on a new domestic violence shelter we were able to purchase with funds from The City of Los Angeles Proposition HHH. The building will shelter eight more families as well as provide space for job training. Job training will begin Fall 2019 with a wonderful new Los Angeles House of Ruth (LAHR) partner; someone who has exciting ideas and is eager to work with our mothers!

Fundraising is still underway to fully support and complete this exciting project. Stay tuned for more information or sign up to receive LAHR e-news and stay connected.
