Short Term Housing
Jovenes provides short-term housing solutions through emergency shelter and transitional housing. These rent-free programs provide youth with the time, space, and support they need to receive counseling and case management, develop an employment plan, and ultimately move into permanent housing. Our emergency shelter is located in Boyle Heights, and our Transitional Housing programs operate in Boyle Heights, Pico Rivera, and Bellflower.

Leadership Through Coordination
Jovenes is the Regional Coordinator for Transition Age Youth in LA’s Coordinated Entry System for SPA 7. SPA 7 covers all of Southeast LA County, from East LA to Long Beach and includes the cities such as Downey, Norwalk, Montebello, Vernon, Pico Rivera, Bellflower, Whittier, Cerritos, and more. Our leadership role in these communities allows us to receive referrals from schools, churches, hospitals, police departments, and concerned neighbors and then place homeless youth into a housing situation that fits their needs.
