There are no geographic restrictions.

People who want a hot morning meal sign up at the center for one of the three meals served at the agency's restaurant for homeless people, the Bread and Roses Cafe. People who sign up regularly can obtain a meal daily. People also sign up to schedule use of the shower or laundry facilities. The center can accommodate 30 people per day to shower and eight people per day for laundry. A change of clothing is usually available for people who come to the center, if needed.


Walk in to sign-up for a hot meal or to use the shower or laundry facilities at the Homeless Service Center. Appointments are made for the following day; the list fills up quickly because services are limited. ID is not required. People who want the hot meal apply at the agency's Homeless Day Center on Rose Ave. Monday through Friday.

User Answers

  1. Yes, I was at The Union rescue mission downtown Los Angeles. I didn't like it because they're always telling people's things. Sometimes we couldn't shower because of fights in the bathroom or they would leave the bathroom unclean so they close the bathroom down and they messed it up for everybody else that needed to shower. And I didn't find any housing through them
