ASOH partners with LA County and DCFS to advance Permanent Supportive Housing. ASOH is the only partner agency with DCFS that refers former foster youth for vouchers and the only agency that DCFS turns to create homes for former foster youth. ASOH secures housing vouchers for former foster youth and once TAY youth receive the keys to their apartment, ASOH turns their empty space into functioning and inspired homes. ASOH connects TAY youth to additional services within our expansive Resource Network and supports them in onboarding to these programs. Resource Network opportunities include financial literacy training, educational scholarships, therapy, trauma informed healing, referrals for job placement, and job training.
ASOH welcomes recipients to pay it forward in supporting their peers in having their homes created. The Pay it Forward Alumna (PIFA) Community enjoys special events where they gather to learn about additional resources, receive custom gifts and wishes, and most importantly connect to the community. Pay it Forward Alumna are invited to become Peer Mentors. They too receive their own mentors and the cycle of support continues as each individual flourishes.
The ASOH model addresses two major social crises: homelessness and the environment. We match excess consumer goods with those in need through a seamless process that adds value to every participant, at every step.
A behind the scenes look at how we do it.
A Sense of Home strives to prevent homelessness by creating first-ever homes for youth aging out of foster care with donated furniture and home goods. 50% of those struggling with homelessness are former foster youth. The homeless crisis can only end through prevention.
