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 Mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles, we serve our broader neighborhood by providing educational and enrichment opportunities. 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.

“I really appreciate my community and all the ways they support us. It’s sort of like a family. We really are all in this together.”

Sr. Judy Vaughan, Founding Director

We continue to provide assistance for ongoing support to help them thrive and remain in their own homes. More than 92% of the families that have gone through the Alexandria House program remain in permanent housing. We are grateful that more than 100 of our past residents continue as engaged members of the extended Alexandria House  community in a variety of ways. Among their participation is the Alexandria House Alumna, an active group of women who provide support for the Alexandria House mission and each other.
