    I stayed here and it was an amazing staff. I was not fond of the staff going through the donations before opening them to the homeless residence there. Other than that, this place was amazing!! Friendly and organized.

Description: Office Hours: 8:00 AM - 5:00 AM, Monday - Friday

The Westwood Transitional Village is a 40 unit residential housing facility that provides support services for homeless families. Families can spend up to two years at Westwood while they stabilize and acquire the skills needed for independent living.

Approximately 150 individuals live at The Village at all times; with families of veterans making up forty percent of the residential population, and two thirds of the total population being children.

The Village campus contains six buildings including 40 apartments, offices, a community center for support services, and a child care center for 18 month to 5 years olds. Support services are provided onsite by cooperating community organizations that provide counseling, education, recreation, and medical services to residents. Families are case managed until they reach a stage of self sufficiency and acquire a savings plan to allow them to live independently.

Call for an intake appointment. A referral is required from a case manager, shelter, social service agency, or other community contact. Required documentation includes picture ID and proof of income and verification of homelessness from a case manager, social worker, shelter or church program.

Veterans should contact the West Los Angeles Veterans Administration. Emancipated youth may apply online at

Families are required to pay rent that is 30% of their income, and also are required to put money into a mandatory savings account for their future housing needs.
