LANGUILLE EMERGENCY SHELTER

L

anguille Emergency shelter, located at 267 N. Belmont Ave., Los Angeles, provides a temporary home for 30 women who are taking the first crucial step out of homelessness toward a life of dignity and self-sufficiency. The women who come through the doors of Languille have lived on the streets or in their cars, fled domestic violence, suffered a job loss, experienced health problems or other life circumstances that led them to homelessness.

This is a 12-week program designed to empower women to obtain the resources needed to become self-sufficient.

Women at Languille Emergency Shelter receive the following services:

  • Three meals a day
  • Basic necessities such as clothing and toiletries
  • Case Management/Resources & Referrals
  • Job development and employment services
  • Communal setting

Languille Emergency Shelter is a 12-week program that empowers homeless women to obtain the resources needed to become independent.

The  program includes:

  • Shelter:
    Women may stay for up to 12 weeks and are housed in shared rooms in a safe, comfortable setting.
  • Basic Necessities:
    We provide three meals a day, clothing, toiletries and other provisions.
  • Case Management:
    Case managers conduct an initial intake with each woman to assess her immediate needs and determine a plan for longer term housing, employment and health maintenance. Each resident must develop a personal plan for housing and finance and meets with a case manager at least once a week to discuss her progress.
  • Job Development and Employment Services:
    An on-staff job coach assists the residents with resume writing, interview skills and finding job openings. Between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., residents are encouraged to seek employment and supportive services outside the residence.
  • Placement into Transitional or Permanent Housing:
    Case managers assist the residents with securing permanent or transitional housing following their 12-week stay.
  • Aftercare:
    After a resident’s 12-week stay has concluded, she may take advantage of our aftercare support and continue to use the services of the Drop-In Program. Throughout this period, case managers maintain contact with the former residents to track their progress.
  • Drop-In Services:
    Women utilizing our drop-in services have the opportunity to go through an intake process and receive refarrals for housing, health care and other social services.
