People Assisting the Homeless (P.A.T.H.) Transitional Shelter
On the first Sunday of each month, St. Monica volunteers spend the afternoon at the P.A.T.H. Transitional Shelter in West L.A. to connect with the residents of the shelter and to provide them with a hot meal. The P.A.T.H. residents are always very grateful for this experience, so we know that you will find it meaningful as well!
The P.A.T.H. Shelter is one of the programs run by P.A.T.H., with the goal of empowering homeless people into self-sufficiency. P.A.T.H. has several offices, programs, and facilities throughout the Los Angeles area. (For example, P.A.T.H. has street outreach teams runs job training and placement centers, provides affordable housing, and sponsors an alumni support group.) At the West L.A. shelter, P.A.T.H. helps residents find work, secure housing, and create a more stable life for themselves.
To help support P.A.T.H.’s mission, we cook and serve a hot meal on the 1st Sunday of the month. We need about 4-5 volunteers to help with food preparation and serving. In addition to helping with cooking and serving, we also need volunteer leaders who are would like to occasionally plan a menu, shop, and help guide volunteers.
We may have availability for high school students to complete Christian or community service hours. Please call for more information.
