About Us

The mission of Upward Bound House (UBH) is to eliminate homelessness among families with children in Los Angeles by providing housing, supportive services, and advocacy. We strive to reduce the number of homeless families with minor children who are hungry and living on the streets of Los Angeles, helping them to access basic resources and successfully transition into their own homes with the capacity to remain there through the followng programs:

Family Shelter, located in Culver City, consists of 18 efficiency units and provides short-term housing for families in crisis.

Family Place, located in Santa Monica, consists of 21 one-bedroom apartments and provides medium-term housing for families in transition to permanent housing.

Rapid Rehousing programs operate from both facilities, these programs seek to move families into permanent housing as quickly as possible then giving them comprehensive services in their homes, to address whatever barriers to family well-being and independent living they may have had.
