For more than 20 years we have been providing 90-day temporary shelter and meals to homeless men. The Guadalupe Homeless Project is the only men’s shelter in East Los Angeles and responds to the needs of a particularly vulnerable segment of society. GHP not only provides men with a safe place to dwell, but also teaches clients to take initiative for their own success and to measure this success in terms of the goals they have defined. As a requirement for receiving services through GHP, clients commit to taking proactive steps to transition into permanent housing with the assistance of trained staff and volunteers. Clients meet regularly with their Case Manager to assess progress on their goals, discuss challenges and receive resources and support to achieve independent living.
