What We Do

The Giving Spirit provides aid to women, children and families in Los Angeles who are left vulnerable due to homelessness. Our volunteers personally distribute survival kits to families living on the streets throughout the greater Downtown Los Angeles region. Our efforts have positively impacted the lives of our volunteers and our homeless friends from Skid Row and Santa Monica.

Homeless Now? Or At Risk?

If you (or someone you know is) are experiencing homelessness, are the victim of domestic violence, are a runaway, or are in need of information on other services, please visit the LA Homeless Services Authority Emergency Response Team website. There you will find information about emergency services and helplines. Many of these phone numbers are toll-free, are open 24 hours a day, and serve the entire Los Angeles County.

    Volunteering For the Holidays

    TGS_Volunteer_Homeless_copy.jpg

    In December 2013 we delivered over 2500 survival kits to homeless families all throughout the city of Los Angeles. We want to be able to do more this year. We cannot express enough how important it is for volunteers to join in The Giving Spirit’s annual Holidays charity events. The holidays remind us of just how much we have and just how little others need. Your time and giving heart is all that is truly required to be of service to your fellow man.
