Here’s what our partners have to say:
Interested in getting your company involved?
Join us on the frontlines of Los Angeles’ humanitarian crisis. Elevate your company’s Corporate Social Responsibility profile by committing funds or in-kind donations that will directly impact the lives of our most vulnerable neighbors. Our integrated model of care allows us to reach and serve people wherever they are on their journey to housing and stability. Together, we can empower the most vulnerable among us to rebuild their lives – housed, healthy and safe.
Make it Your Own
Sponsor an entire program or site for any period of time you’d like – be it a day, a week, month or year! Your support could fund special activities, meals, transportation and more. For example, $3,150 would fund 3 meals per day for 50 people for an entire week! We’d love to hear your ideas. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Celebrate with us by underwriting an event benefitting our neighbors! Our multi-tiered event sponsorship packages can be tailored to maximize visibility and recognition for our partners. We stand ready to collaborate and innovate so that we can generate the biggest impact for both our partners and our neighbors.
Our corporate partners can also help spread holiday cheer at our program sites throughout LA during the months of November and December. It’s never too early to make a commitment for the upcoming holiday season.

Give Thanks & Gobble
Give Thanks and Gobble started in 2011 as a local teenager’s initiative to bring awareness to the issue of hunger and homelessness and provide a true Thanksgiving experience for her most vulnerable neighbors. Since then, community leaders, businesses and volunteers come together to share a delicious Thanksgiving feast with over 200 individuals living in The People Concern’s Westside interim housing sites. Join us in 2020 by becoming an official sponsor!
Each Giving Tree celebration is a day of food, festivities and holiday cheer! They are one of the highlights of the year for our program participants, many of whom have not celebrated the holidays in a while. Last December we helped make the season brighter for over 1,000 program participants at our interim and permanent supportive housing programs. Our corporate partners brought food, presents and hosted joyous celebrations throughout L.A. County. Click here to learn more about Giving Tree! We hope you’ll join us in December 2021.
Looking for a way to foster a culture of giving back in the workplace? Corporate Volunteering is proven to inspire employees, enhance collaboration among team members and enhance employee engagement. The People Concern is proud to partner with dozens of corporations year-round to provide meaningful ways for corporate volunteers to get involved and stay inspired.

Ways to Stay Involved Off-Site
Here’re additional ways to make a difference from the comfort of your office (or home)!
Hygiene kits helps us satisfy some of the basic needs of our homeless neighbors. Outreach teams distribute these necessities to those they meet in the field, helping them engage and build relationships with homeless individuals and connect them to life-saving services and housing.
Hygiene kits consist of travel-size toiletries inside a Ziploc bag. Items for hygiene kits can be purchased in bulk. Purchased items for hygiene kits here.
WELCOME HOME BASKETS
Moving into a home is a huge achievement. When our program participants secure permanent housing, we make sure they have the essentials needed to settle into their new home and stay housed for good.
