Who is Jovenes?
A home and family for those without, Jovenes is a non-profit organization that helps young people end their cycle of homelessness. Located in Boyle Heights and serving communities throughout Southeast LA County, Jovenes goes deep – focusing on not only a young person's need for housing, but also healthcare, education, employment, and trauma recovery. Jovenes is creating innovative solutions for homeless community college students and youth in Los Angeles. Homelessness does not define our youth – it’s just an experience they go through. Jovenes’ housing and supportive services are tools that help youth achieve their goals and transform their lives.
How We can help
Salice is partnering with Jovenes to support homeless students by providing home starter kits and personalized support to youth on their journey out of homelessness.
When Jovenes gives a homeless young person an apartment, they often come unfurnished and without necessary supplies. That’s why the home starter kits are crucial. They provide living essentials that help youth turn their new residences into homes. They include items such as cleaning and household supplies, plates and flatware, socks, towels, blanket and more. The starter kits are an amazing way to build trust and demonstrate that each youth served by Jovenes has a community that is rooting for their success.
Along with providing housing, Jovenes provides individualized support to each student with compassionate case managers that often times become a student’s family. Each case manager provides their youth with tutoring, counseling and additional emergency resources such as books, food, transportation, and more to help youth thrive physically, emotionally and academically.
Our goal this year is to raise $15,000 to deliver home starter kits and provide personalized support to homeless youth in need. 3% of net sales from each Shop Salice Rose purchase goes towards funding these kits, so your purchase truly does make a difference in the life of a Jovenes student!
