Organization Description: 

Proyecto Pastoral at Dolores Mission was founded in 1986 to reduce gang violence in Boyle Heights.  Programs provide training, education and social services to low-income, primarily Latino, uninsured immigrants. It provides an emergency shelter, after school academic enrichment for K-12, early education centers, a thrift store, and a community organizing and civic engagement program.  

 

Grant Purpose: 

The Guadalupe Homeless Project (GHP), provides women and families with rental assistance, motel vouchers, clothing vouchers, and bus tokens.

We’re thrilled that we were invited to apply for a grant from The Foundation, because there’s so much need in our community. This grant will greatly increase our ability to support more families in need of temporary housing.
