Change a Life

Donations | Corporate Giving | Volunteer
A typical homeless shelter room has bare walls & floors, minimal color and institutional linens.  Furnishings are usually worn or broken.  A Lotta Love brings change!  We install contemporary furniture, curtains and decor, plus a bright coat of paint.  These small changes address the most basic human needs of comfort and sense of place.  Simple things like a soft pillow, comfy chair, or cheery artwork help residents and employees feel like they belong to a safe, welcoming community. They are also motivated to move forward and reach ahead.
Watch the video to see one of many projects in the works to support shelters for women escaping violence and domestic abuse.  This is Lotta's Place, a secure location in Orange County supported by The Compass Center.


100% of any size donation goes towards helping local homeless families. 

For every $500 raised covers the cost to remake a room that typically houses 4 people.  New pillows, sheets, toiletries and other decor are given to each new resident of every bedroom we rehab.  When they're able to move on, they can take that source of comfort and sense of ownership with them. 

Larger donations help us renovate larger shared spaces such as living rooms, reception areas, and kitchens as well as gardens and outdoor seating areas.

In making a donation, please let us know if you'd like us to acknowledge a special purpose or dedication.
