Our mission is to empower and transform lives by delivering innovative solutions to combat poverty and break the cycle of homelessness. As one of the best comprehensive human services organizations, we are committed to establishing a world in which all people have and maintain a high-quality productive life. Tax ID 95-6054617


Our programs and services are housed in our 11-story former El Rey Hotel building, located at the corner of 6th and San Pedro Street. The Weingart Center provides direct services to more than 20,000 economically disadvantaged individuals per year. We offer programs uniquely tailored to meet the needs of this diverse population. Whatever the obstacles are – debt, addiction, a criminal record, mental illness, or physical illness – we help them overcome these challenges and clear the way for a fulfilling life.


Our transitional residential programs go beyond the emergency shelter approach by providing housing along with comprehensive wrap-around services including case management and other treatment services. Case management includes: orientation, individualized needs assessment, client plan development and tracking, coordination of services, advocacy, referrals, group meetings, and other related services. All programs require clients to save at least 75% of their income.


The Weingart Center provides comprehensive human services to homeless individuals and to those at risk of becoming homeless giving them the skills, resources and hope they need to lead productive and self-sufficient lives off the streets. Located in Skid Row, in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, the Weingart Center is a unique agency that provides residential and community based programs, all designed to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
