Our Goal


The Giving Spirit - What We Do


The Giving Spirit provides aid to women, children and families in Los Angeles who are left vulnerable due to homelessness. Our volunteers personally distribute survival kits to families living on the streets throughout the greater Downtown Los Angeles region. Our efforts have positively impacted the lives of our volunteers and our homeless friends from Skid Row and Santa Monica.

Students Welcome!


For high school and college students looking for volunteer opportunities in the Los Angeles area, volunteering for The Giving Spirit is a great way to be of service in your community and meet other volunteers and professionals in the greater Los Angeles area.

A Little Goes A Long Way


Your financial donations and gifts keep hundreds of people in Los Angeles alive and healthy. What may seem like a small gift on your part may truly become another family’s lifeline in a time of need.


Help End Child Homelessness


Of more than a quarter of a million homeless people living in the county of Los Angeles, unaccompanied youth account for an estimated total of about 10,000 of these people. In fact, according to the Weingart Center’s Institute for The Study of Homelessness and Poverty, as children 27% of this population lived in foster care or group homes; 25% were physically or sexually abused. Learn more about how you can help end child poverty by donating to The Giving Spirit.

Volunteering For the Holidays


In December 2012 we delivered 2500 survival kits to homeless families all throughout the city of Los Angeles. We want to be able to do more this year. We cannot express enough how important it is for volunteers to join in The Giving Spirit’s annual Holidays charity events. The holidays remind us of just how much we have and just how little others need. Your time and giving heart is all that is truly required to be of service to your fellow man.
