Upward Bound House- Fundraising

Got this from a College Close Friend... Love the concept :) Do help out by clicking the link below

Wanted to keep in touch with all of you and tell you about this new thing I am doing with a  couple of friends. We have adopted an apartment @ Upward bound house (UBH) in Culver City for one year and are looking for some help from friends and family.
Upward bound house (UBH) Culver City provides emergency shelter for homeless families with children. We have completed our first apartment furnish in May and will be doing it again around August/September for the next family in need.

Here is a link for more infomation about our project and how you may be able to help.

Thank you so much and God Bless you all!


Upward Bound House is a community-based, social service agency headquartered in Santa Monica California.  We are a federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1991 to help mitigate the affordable housing crisis on the Westside of Los Angeles County and specifically, its impact on two vulnerable populations:   homeless families with minor children and very low-income seniors.
Upward Bound House fulfills its mission through Family Place, its transitional housing facility for homeless families, and Senior Villa, its affordable housing facility for the very low-income elderly, both located in Santa Monica.  Our newest facility,  Family Shelter, is an emergency shelter for families with children located in Culver City.
Connecting our Santa Monica facilities and our surrounding community is our innovative S. Mark Taper Foundation Intergenerational Center, a place where the three generations housed at Upward Bound can interact and receive services that will allow each resident to lead an enriched, empowered and independent life.

  • 10,100 children are homeless on any given night in Los Angeles county

  • 7,998 of these children are living in places UNFIT FOR HUMAN HABITATION

  • We believe in the mission of Upward Bound House and we believe in the power of design and how a persons environment can have an impact on esteem and self it can inspire and transform; be it a 5 star hotel room, or a transitional shelter.
