Founded in 1996, Alexandria House is a transitional residence and house of hospitality. We provide safe and supportive housing for women and children in the process of moving from emergency shelter to economic stability and permanent housing. Located in the densely populated and ethnically diverse Mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles, we also serve our broader neighborhood community by providing educational and enrichment opportunities for our neighbors as well as our residents.
In response to the compelling needs of the women and children living in Alexandria House, as well as the neighborhood needs before us each day, our goal is to be a community-oriented transitional house and neighborhood center. We are intentionally multicultural and anti-racist, and the needs of women who are economically poor are at the center of our commitment. We are blessed to be supported by a community of caring individuals and groups who share our mission.
More than 92% of the women who have moved through the Alexandria House program have succeeded in securing financial stability and permanent housing.
Thank you to Black Butterfly and Emi Morell for the moving mini-documentary featuring Ashly, who shares with us the extreme difficulties of homelessness and the dramatic effect that hope and compassionate help can have on a person’s life.
