This is the day ... to help the most vulnerable people in Southern California.

A heartfelt thanks to everyone who has reached out to donate and lend a helping hand to the LA COVID-19 homelessness relief efforts since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. You have inspired us to be more innovative as we continue to provide Coronavirus homelessness services. We are endeavoring to continue maneuvering with confidence through this time of uncertainty with ways to continue providing our emergency services (hot meals, showers, a safe place to sleep, etc.) to our community.

Our homeless neighbors need our help now more than ever. You can help.

Make a financial donation through our website, TODAY if you can:

Send these much-needed items directly to The Midnight Mission.

We are serving thousands of “take-out” meals each day and need the following supplies:

  • Disposable lunch bags
  • Disposable multi-compartment to-go food containers
  • Disposable utensils (forks, spoons, knives)
  • Napkins
  • Plastic wrap
  • Ready to eat meals, including sandwiches
  • Re-sealable storage bags
  • Single serving beverages

We desperately need the following supplies to keep our facility clean and safe:

  • EPA approved antibacterial disinfecting cleaners
  • Antibacterial disinfecting wipes
  • Disposable gloves
  • Surgical masks
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Infra-red no-touch thermometers

This is the day… to help those who have no place to be “Safer at Home.”

For the almost 59,000 people experiencing homelessness, there is no “Safer at Home” option. As the rest of the world has closed their doors, those without doors have been left scared and hopeless on our streets, with no options. A recent study shows that homeless people infected by COVID-19 are twice as likely to be hospitalized, two to four times as likely to require critical care, and two to three times as likely to die as the general population. The doors at The Midnight Mission have remained open during the COVID-19 crisis, as they have been since 1914.

The safety and security of our community guests, program participants, volunteers, and staff are our highest priority. We are closely monitoring official recommendations and will continue to meet the growing needs of our community by adjusting our plans as guided by these official experts. Please follow us on our social media platforms to learn what actions you can take to help us through this challenging time.

Thank you for being a part of The Midnight Mission’s family and ensuring that individuals and families experiencing homelessness have the support they need to stay safe and healthy through this crisis and beyond.

With your help, we can continue to serve those in need here in Skid Row. Please consider a generous gift today. We appreciate you so much.
