Hope at the Door is a ministry that provides referral support to people dealing with housing, food, and employment challenges. We can connect people in need with local agencies or organizations that can help them stabilize their lives, and can occasionally provide some limited financial assistance.
Due to LA County Safer-at-Home precautions, our physical office is currently closed.
The safest way to request help or ask a question is to call (310) 566-1564, and leave a phone message, including your full name and phone number.
A staff member will call you back within two business days to discuss your situation and provide referrals and resources.
As we continue with the pandemic a rising concern for many local households is food insecurity or the lack of access to food. This is due to various reasons including loss of income due to lay-offs or reductions of hours at work; the loss of school based meals and unexpected bills brought on by the pandemic.
This has led many individuals and families to consider for the first time reaching out to community and social services for help. We are aware that many find it challenging to approach agencies for help, feel ashamed to do so or don’t know how to start.
Help us spread the word on a new Primer for Pandemic Food Resources listing resources to access food in the West Los Angeles and Santa Monica area.
Encourage people to seek help and let them know that many agencies have relaxed or eliminated the requirements to get food due to the pandemic.
