    Fire Relief Fund

    It's nearly 3 a.m. on the morning of March 19, 2020 and the smell of smoke is heavy in the air.  Our beautiful green house had a fire that started on the 2nd floor and spread to the 3rd floor as well. We are extremely grateful that everyone got out safely and nobody was hurt. All of the families who lived in the green house are being temporarily housed in a motel right around the corner. We are waiting to hear how extensive the damage is and how rapidly the families can return.

    In the meantime, we turn to you, our faithful supporters, and ask for you to keep us in your thoughts and prayers. This is an immediate appeal to help us in our time of need.  This Emergency Fire Relief Fund will provide for temporary housing, food, clothing, and more.

    Ways You Can Help

    As we take a deep breath, we know you are here with us and we are ever grateful.

    Feel free to call our office (213-381-2649) to learn how you can help. We ask that you call before coming to the house as we are practicing social distancing. Thank you so much for your support.

    Volunteer With Us!

    Note: We are currently not accepting any volunteers EXCEPT for our Top Chef Program.
    Click here for more information about Top Chef and contact our office at (213) 381-2649 to schedule a dinner drop-off.

    At Alexandria House, our volunteers are a treasured part of our community. Together we laugh, cook, eat, play, and work as we help women and children in need.

    Over the years, volunteers have taught art classes, provided counseling, driven residents to appointments, created on-site gardens, led writing workshops, took our children to the beach, and so much more. Our Top Chefs gather family and friends to cook weeknight meals for our residents, while energetic organizers join us to set up our monthly Thrift Sales. Whether you come once a week, once a month, or once a year, we need your enthusiasm, compassion, and unique talents.

    Volunteer Orientation

    We ask that all new volunteers first attend an orientation. We typically have volunteer orientations twice a month on the first Tuesday of the month at 7pm and the second Saturday at 10:30am. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all our volunteer programs have been suspended and we will not have volunteer orientations until further notice.

    If you have more questions, please contact our office at (213) 381-2649.
