    Hello there,

    Im trying to gain more information on your Open Door Program. I recently became homeless 4 weeks ago due to unforeseen circumstances. I was attempting to gain info on your program, because I think it could REALLY help me get back to where I was. I looked on your website to find a # to call to get more info, but there isn’t 1. Is there a location with in Los Angeles that I can go to physically, and get the process started?
