    Living Wage for Workers

    With the support of the LA2050 community, our initiative aims to strengthen our organization's capacity to better serve the LA community by providing livable wages for our frontline workers who are primarily BIPOC folks, some with lived experience. By investing in fair compensation, we will empower our essential staff to continue delivering quality care to the participants in our safe parking program to end homelessness, while also contributing to the movement to create a more sustainable and equitable homelessness response sector.

    Neighbors for Home

    Safe Parking LA seeks support for Neighbors for Home, a grassroots community engagement initiative that mobilizes local residents to act around the problem of vehicular homelessness in their own neighborhoods. In partnership with LA’s Neighborhood Councils, lot partners, and other local groups, SPaLA will activate a series of volunteer opportunities to support organizational capacity, promote positive interactions with people who live in their vehicles, and build change-making communities dedicated to solving the problem of homelessness.
