Every Imagine LA family has experienced poverty and in many cases, homelessness. And yet, we believe no one is defined by their most difficult experience. With Imagine LA, families access the tools, skills, and spaces to advance their goals around career, finance, education, health, and more. We walk alongside families through caring case management, a team of volunteer mentors, and a community of supporters who always have their back.
Our teams of volunteer mentors serve as friends and partners, working one-on-one with a parent, teen, or youth in our program. Through the power of transformative relationships, mentors and mentees join forces to grow and have fun together. Mentors are supported by Imagine LA and their fellow team members because we believe that no one thrives alone.
Everything we do is built on a foundation of trust and relationships. Whole-family, caring case management works to prevent first-time or repeat homelessness, and clear barriers to family goals, which sets the stage for economic mobility programming, financial independence, and success for the whole family.
All families gain access and guidance through a comprehensive Financial Fitness curriculum, our Matched Savings program, Living-Wage Careers Pathways (healthcare, logistics, technology, and more), and support securing childcare.
All family members ages 5 and up have the opportunity to be matched with their own trained volunteer mentor. Mentors, under the guidance and coaching of the family’s case manager, provide personal attention for their mentees and foster connectedness, new opportunities, and mutual growth. Lives are transformed at every level. After graduation, families and mentors come back to inspire the next generation.
