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
