Mommy and Me
Mommy and Me is an unique Anne Douglas Center program catering to the needs of struggling moms who are homeless or living in other shelters and missions in the area. Mommy and Me was born one Saturday morning in 2005, the ADC’s head chef, Gayla Love, was working at the Mission when she met a few women who had arrived too late to receive one of the Mission’s daily shower and clothing tickets. Gayla asked why they were late, and they said they had to prepare breakfast for their children before coming to the ADC that day.

Gayla came up with a solution: serving breakfast at the ADC on Saturday mornings to the women so their children would have a guaranteed hot meal while they “shopped” for clothing for themselves and their children in the Mission’s donated-clothing room.

Now Mommy & Me has grown to serve an average of 12-15 mothers and 25 children every Saturday morning. It offers a wonderful opportunity to help, encourage, and connect with these hurting women and children while providing them with food, clothes–and hope.

Food Baskets
The Los Angeles Mission has a long history of providing emergency food baskets to those in need. However, in the last six years, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of requests for emergency food. Each week, we prepare about 40-50 baskets, filled with items donated from local markets including Albertsons. Each basket includes nutritious ingredients for preparing a balanced meal. For more information about our Emergency Food Basket Program, please call at the Anne Douglas Center (213) 614-0743.
