NEW IMAGE SHELTER
Make a Difference Today
New Image Shelter, Inc. wants to spread its message of hope and compassion to homeless and low-income populations currently in dire need in the Greater Los Angeles county areas, and environs. We believe that a single action can make a difference in a community, and that collectively, we can greatly impact the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly each day to contribute their part to the greater good, by reaching out to those in need and addressing their housing and supportive service needs, as well as their health and well being.
New Image Shelter, Inc. is driven by a single goal: to do our part in making the world a better place, by outreaching to homeless encampments i.e.: tents, cardboard, pile wood, abandoned buildings, cars, under bridges, bypasses, and other places not meant for human habitation, as well as motels that are housing the homeless, and other temporary housing sites, and providing them with the necessary items that individuals and families with children need, to stay in the safest compliance with governmental requirements relevant to the ‘Safer at Home’, order. Thus, the New Image Outreach Team has increased its distribution of: food, some perishables, payment and delivery of medicine/pharmaceutical items, toiletries, diapers, body and baby wipes, water, basic cleaning supplies, masks, and hand sanitizers. All items of which the New Image Outreach Team has been distributing to those in inhumane structures and/or areas, in an effort to sustain their survival and living conditions, while their housing is still unavailable.
As you can imagine with this pandemic (and the subsequent quarantine orders), individuals and families with children experiencing homelessness and financial hardships are some of the most vulnerable, specifically those that we have placed into permanent or bridge housing, who were just getting on their feet and are now experiencing severe, and serious threats to their livelihood, and housing.
As we all may be aware, government funds are running low due to the expenses of treating those affected; researching and prevention tools; providing financial stability to the ‘masses’, and preparing for Post-COVID-19 transition. Subsequently, we are calling on our community to help whenever and wherever they can, to assist us financially and/or with product, to provide food and other staples; shelter; and placement assistance to those with literally nowhere else to turn. With your help, we can make a real difference while saving lives!
FOOD SERVED FRESH
New Image also provides a ‘food basket program’ for families with children and is focused on those who are low-income. This program provides a food basket that has been prepared with canned goods, vegetables, boxed and bagged pastas, rice canned meats, and sauces, and also includes a supermarket gift card. The gift card enables the family to purchase their staples, i.e. perishables such as bread, milk, eggs, etc. The Food Baskets are available once weekly. Your financial donation is needed especially now, to address the nutritional needs of the increased numbers of families we are now serving.
At New Image Shelter, we are dedicated to providing Case Management and supportive services to homeless and low income Families with Children, Individuals, and Fathers with Children throughout the Los Angeles area.
